Everton Cruise Past Stevenage

Everton booked their place in the fifth round of the FA Cup, as they beat Stevenage 4-0 at Broadhall Way.

Stephen Naismith gave Everton the lead in the 5th minute with a finish from close range, after Aidan McGeady's cross deflected into the striker's path.

Luke Freeman's left-footed effort drew a fine save from Joel Robles in the 21st minute, after the midfielder had been teed up by Felipe Morais

Substitute Leon Osman squandered a great chance to extend the visitors lead in the 22nd minute, the midfielder managed to get on the end of Hibbert's cross but could not direct his volley on target.

Morais came close to equalising for Stevenage in the 25th minute, but the midfielder's curling free kick drew a fine save from Robles.

Naismith doubled the Toffees advantage in the 32nd minute, the striker pounced on a mistake from the Stevenage defence before calmly slotting past Chris Day.

Aidan McGeady tried his luck from range in the 38th minute, but the winger's lob from outside the area was comfortably held by Day.

Freeman tried his luck from distance just before the halftime break, but his shot went high and wide.

Johnny Heitinga got Everton's third in the 55th minute with a deflected header from close range, following Kevin Mirallas' acrobatic cross.

Francios Zoko missed a chance to pull one back in the 70th minute for the League One outfit, the striker did well to out-muscle Phil Jagielka before firing just wide.

Magaye Gueye got Everton's fourth in the 85th minute, the substitute got beyond the Stevenage defence before slotting past Day.

Joel Robles denied the hosts in the 90th minute, the shot stopper got down well to deny Roarie Deacon.
