Centre-half likely to be involved in FA Cup match at Stevenage

Sylvain Distin is in contention for Everton’s trip to Stevenage a week today.

The centre-back has recovered from a hamstring injury and has been with the squad this week as the Toffees travelled to Tenerife for some warm weather training.

He could even feature as early as Monday as Everton face an evening match against West Brom in the Premier League.

Speaking to the Everton club website, manager Roberto Martinez said: “Sylvain has come through four sessions now and has had no reaction. That straight away has been one of the benefits. He has been able to work with the group with no effects to him.”
