BOLTON WANDERERS 0 EVERTON U21s 2 - ANDREW TAYLOR

Full back Andrew Taylor featured for the full 90 minutes of Bolton's 0-2 defeat at home to Everton's Under 21s in the Checkatrade Trophy last night, with former Latics striker Conor McAleny on target for the young Toffees to ensure top spot in Northern Group A.

Bolton's defeat sees them bottom of the group.

BLACKPOOL 2 CHELTENHAM TOWN 1 - DANNY WHITEHEAD

Sticking in Northern Group A, midfielder Danny Whitehead played the full 90 minutes of Cheltenham's 2-1 defeat away at Blackpool, despite the League Two side taking a first half lead.

The Robins sit third in Group A, above Taylor's Bolton.

OLDHAM ATHLETIC 4 CARLISLE UNITED 5 - BILLY MCKAY

The big winner of the night on a personal level was striker Billy Mckay who opened his goal scoring account for Oldham, only for he and his team mates to drop to an action-packed 4-5 defeat at home to Carlisle.

Mckay opened the scoring on the night, but the eight goals that followed see the Latics third in Northern Group D.
