Victor Anichebe and Dani Pacheco on the mark as Everton Reserves and Liverpool Reserves draw
Liverpool and Everton fans 300 VICTOR ANICHEBE continued his comeback from injury with an equaliser as Everton Reserves shared the mini-derby spoils with Liverpool at the Stobart Stadium last night. Barclays Premier Reserve League leaders Liverpool had taken the lead with a superb solo effort from Spaniard Dani Pacheco. But the Blues secured a point thanks to Anichebe's quick reply. In a typically-competitive contest there were not that many clear-cut chances for either side to secure all three points. But the draw means that Liverpool maintained their three-point advantage over their neighbours at the top of the table. Both sides fielded young but strong line-ups. Liverpool had Danny Wilson, fresh from his goalscoring international debut with Scotland, in the line-up along with Pacheco and Nathan Eccleston, who have all played in Roy Hodgson's line-up. While the Blues could call pn Anichebe, Shane Duffy and Jose Baxter among those with first-team experience. Baxter and Kieren Agard both tested Martin Hansen in the Reds goal before Liverpool took the lead on 21 minutes. Spanish striker Pacheco capped a fine display by dancing into the Everton area onto Gerardo Bruna's quick free-kick before delicately lofting over Blues keeper Iain Turner to score from a tight angle.
