Moyes could field teens in Europa League game

Everton manager David Moyes is set to put his trust in youth and several fringe players for the Europa League match against BATE Borisov at Goodison Park.

Sixteen-year-olds Jack Bidewell and Luke Garbutt are in contention to feature, with qualification to the last 32 already assured and the squad riddled with injuries.

Moyes will rest his key players, with goalkeeper Carlo Nash coming into the team, while Tony Hibbert will captain the side as he makes a club record 20th European appearance.

Provisional squad: Nash, Coleman, Duffy, Hibbert, Bidwell, Osman, Forshaw, Baxter, Rodwell, Yakubu, Agard, Cahill, Howard, Baines, Bilyaletdinov, Pienaar, Fellaini, Jo, Saha, Yakubu, Akpan, Mustafi, McCarten, Garbutt.
