Mark Jackson reaction

Our report from Southport

Everton 4-2 Leeds United. Reaction to follow...

90+3. United pushing but this one is done... McKinstry strays offside from a Joffy throughball on the far side.

90+2. Butterfield booked - he drags down Joffy in his own half after some lovely skill from the Leeds man.

90. We’re into added time.

90. Lovely finish from Hughes. Leeds are short at the back. He steals it and drills into the bottom corner. 4-2 and game over.

88. For the first time tonight... they were looking the more likely to go on and take the late lead but it’s a sucker punch. Such a weird goal. A tame shot looped up and straight to Whitaker’s feet. United need to find something.

86. Ugh. Everton shoot from distance... it’s a nothing effort. Takes a huge deflection and falls to Whitaker in the box who finishes low past Klaesson.

84. A rare Everton attack... a deep cross is swung to the back post. Price is there lurking but his header is tame and collected by Klaesson.
