83. McKinstry is proving a tricky customer on the far side for Everton. He’s making some clever runs in behind. Leeds keeping the ball away from the Toffees really well. Trying to build an attack but haven’t quite found that opening yet.

82. Onyango off, Butterfield on.

81. Hughes on for Mills.

80. Leeds chance... Jackson’s men on the front foot. Jenkins intercepts in the middle. Joffy then finds Miller and he lifts his effort over the bar from a tight angle.

78. Good work on the far side again - it’s Leeds on the front foot. McKinstry again... but he can’t keep his delivery in play. Head in hands moment.

77. United the better of the two teams at the moment - they win a corner ball. McKinstry and Moore link up. The former sees his low ball in turned behind. Everton clear the corner in.

75. Through his man on halfway. He wasn’t going past - yellow card.

73. Few loose challenges going in from both teams - Joffy hasn’t really had a sniff since he came on at the break. Need to get him in this. Just as I say that he gives away a free-kick in the final third.

Leeds seeing the ball

70. United getting a bit of a second wind. Miller gets onto a ball over the top but he gives away a free-kick down the left. Leeds seeing a lot of the ball now but haven’t created much at all this half. Need to give Joffy an opening.

68. Everton change - Dobbin can’t continue after he came back on. Cannon is now on. He had been the Toffees best player tonight.
