66. Dobbin gets some treatment... and it takes him a while to leave the pitch. Play gets back underway and he’s hobbled back on.

63. Everton bench not happy. A ball is cleared and Dobbin is trying to race onto it - he hits the floor as Kenneh keeps pace. Didn’t look a lot in it. Ref says play on... and the winger is actually down now with cramp. Brief stop in play.

62. Good work from McGurk on the left byline. He finds space and wins a free-kick, which Leeds take quickly to restart play.

61. McKinstry with another lovely ball. He finds Moore down the right flank - he delivers first time low into the box but he can’t find a Leeds shirt.

60. McGurk is put through by a lovely ball - he takes a touch but he can’t get it out of his feet before Everton swarm on him. Leeds seeing more of the ball now. Need to find another gear. Been a bit too lethargic since the half-time break.

57. McKinstry with a lovely flick on the far side to open up Everton. The ball is squared to Joffy... he shoots low and it’s blocked. He tries to shoot again but it’s blocked once more before it’s cleared. Open game now.

55. Leeds have seen their two-goal cushion disappear. The Toffees have been much the better side since the interval and deserve their goal.

53. Leeds are caught completely out of shape. Everton have a man over. They square it and square it again. Dobbin eventually fires into the corner past Klaesson. 2-2.

53. The Toffees are level through Dobbin...

52. Dobbin races into the Leeds box. He shoots low to the near post and Klaesson keeps it out with a strong hand.
