    • 24' Didn't look like a penalty to Everton, but visiting manager David Moyes won't be complaining about how this first half is working out.
    • 23' Carter with a hopeful ball up the park, but comes off his shin. Suddenly the life has gone out of the League Two side.
    • 22' Winners of this match visit Bolton or Sunderland in the fourth round. Looks like Everton are on their way unless some large slice of misfortune visits them.
    • 21' GOAL! Baines plants the ball low to the keeper's right. Brown guessed right, but too much pace on the shot. A 2-0 lead for Everton now.
    • 20' PENALTY TO EVERTON! Marouane Fellaini is fouled by Bennett in the home box. Was deemed to be jumping on the shoulders of Marouane Fellaini.
    • 19' Brown dives to make a brilliant one-handed stop to claw out the free-kick by Baines. What a stop that is.
    • 18' 27 - since Aug 2010, Leighton Baines has had a hand in 27 Premier League goals - 12 goals & 15 assists - 10 more than any other defender.
    • 17' Carter smashes the ball at goal from distance with his left peg. Straight down the middle as Howard dives to collect the loose ball.

    • 14' Was some lovely work by Oviedo to play his role in that opening goal for Everton, who continue to search for a second goal.

    • 12' The lower league side unfortunate to be behind, but Everton ahead with their first real attack of the match.

    • 10' Jelavic sets up Oviedo with a cushioned ball into his path, but the shot is straight into the arms of Brown in the home goal.
    • 9' Jagielka comes across to win the ball from Goulding. Super piece of covering. Penn showing some true class in midfield.
    • 8' Cheltenham certainly not reluctant to fly into the tackles out there. Tight pitch, but the home side finding enough space at the moment.
    • 7' Kaid Mohamed thumps an effort at goal from distance, but the ball always rising over the bar. Goalkick to Everton.
    • 6' Carter turns on the edge of the Everton box, but can only knock the shot wide of goal. Fine sweeping move by Cheltenham, but the finish not there. Howard was scrambling.

    • 2' Distin having to look lively early on to wallop the ball away from Penn. The home side trying to move forward at pace.
    • 1' Cheltenham get the match off and running.
    • 19.42 Everton with two changes then from the win at Newcastle as Coleman and Oviedo replace Heitinga and Naismith. 6,891 watching this match tonight.
    • 19.40 Cheltenham have not enjoyed the calmest of build-ups ahead of this match with their training ground being burgled. Read about it here.... FA Cup - Cheltenham burgled ahead of Everton clash
    • 19.35 Cheltenham have progressed just once in their last eight draws against teams from higher divisions; and never against a top flight side (from three ties). Only once since 1912 have Everton been eliminated by a team from the fourth tier or below. It was by Shrewsbury in 2003 at this stage of the competition.
    • 19.30 This will be the first ever competitive meeting between Cheltenham and Everton. Everton have won three and lost none of their last five FA Cup games on the road.
    • 19.25 David Moyes: "I totally understand what you've got to do to get through in the FA Cup. You've got to play well, and you've got to be ready for all sorts of things in the game. I'm wary about what happened at Shrewsbury a few years ago. We went out then. And we got knocked out by Oldham as well. It's happened to us in the past that we've been knocked out, so of course we have to be wary. We have to try to make sure that doesn't happen, but we were trying to do that then as well."
    • 19.20 Mark Yates: "It's a great cup-tie for the town. The Tottenham fixture last year was brilliant because it was away from home and it's a fantastic stadium for the lads to go away and experience and we did alright. This one's at our place with 7000 supporters, if will be a fantastic atmosphere and to see Premier League players at Whaddon Road will be brilliant. I'll make sure my boys are relaxed and will enjoy it and if they do that then they will give a good account of themselves."
    • 19.15 Everton manager David Moyes names a strong side with left-back Leighton Baines starting for the visitors while midfielders Thomas Hitzlsperger and Ross Barkley are both on the bench as Everton seek to avoid an upset. Forward Kevin Mirallas and defender Seamus Coleman (both hamstring) are still sidelined, as are Tony Hibbert (calf) and Darron Gibson (thigh).
    • 19.10 Cheltenham boss Mark Yates had a slight injury concern over Darren Carter, but the former West Brom midfielder makes it after being assessed in the build-up to the televised clash. He was substituted just after half-time in the 1-0 defeat at Oxford on New Year's Day having picked up a facial injury. A number of the Robins squad also sustained knocks against the U's but Yates is not too worried. Former Everton Academy goalkeeper Connor Roberts is on the bench for Cheltenham this evening.
    • 19.05 TEAMS: Cheltenham: Brown, Jombati, Bennett, Elliott, Jones, Pack, Carter, McGlashan, Penn, Mohamed, Goulding..subs: Lowe, Hooman, Deering, Duffy, Roberts, Harrad, Taylor////Everton: Howard, Coleman, Baines, Distin, Jagielka, Oviedo, Neville, Osman, Fellaini, Anichebe, Jelavic..subs: Mucha, Duffy, Gueye, Vellios, Barkley, Hitzlsperger, Naismith
