Pembridge returns but Blues beaten; Bolton Res . . . . . . . . . .2 Everton Res . . . . . . . . .1.
The Welsh international did well in the centre of midfield alongside Tobias Linderoth in front of the onlooking David Moyes before being substituted after 59 minutes.
Everton took the lead through Leon Osman, who scored from 12 yards after 30 minutes.
Bolton levelled matters just before the break. Peter Clarke was adjudged to have pushed Michael Ricketts and the England international sent Paul Gerrard the wrong way.
Keith Southern had two good chances to put the Everton ahead ten minutes into the second half, but Jeff Cassar saved his effort from Kevin McLeod's cross.
From the corner Southern was again denied by the Bolton keeper.
Bolton's Jermaine Johnson hit the post and Peter Clarke blocked a Chris Downey goalbound effort.
The Trotters eventually grabbed the winner on 76 minutes after Johnson's shot took a wicked deflection off George Pilkington.
EVERTON RES: Gerrard, Cleland, Valentine, Pilkington, Clarke, Pembridge (Eaton 59), Southern, Linderoth, Moore, Osman, McLeod. Subs: O'Hanlon, Curran.
