Both United and Everton had experienced a similar series of results during the opening few weeks of the season. The Reds started the game in the table’s eighth spot with five points from five outings whilst the Toffees had collected one point fewer from the same number of fixtures. And both sides had registered just one three-pointer before this evening’s clash which coincidentally arrived in their respective last home games. United’s 2-1 win came against Brighton & Hove Albion while Everton defeated Derby County 1-0.
So it certainly appeared to be a tight contest in prospect for the modest crowd that had braved a breezy and chilly evening to make their way along to Haig Avenue, the traditional name for this ground in the seaside town.
The supporters had barely settled into their chosen vantage point – seated or standing – when United claimed a very welcome early goal. Dillon Hoogewerf started the move on the right wing with a fine cross into the area which found Shola Shoretire, who rapidly picked out Elanga and the striker had the relatively easy task of tapping his side into the lead.
