Everton have confirmed Duncan Ferguson will continue as caretaker boss for the Toffees’ Carabao Cup quarter-final with Leicester at Goodison Park on Wednesday.

Following the sacking of Marco Silva on December 5, Ferguson has been in charge for the club’s last two Premier League matches – a 3-1 home win over Chelsea and a 1-1 draw at Manchester United on Sunday.

Although the former Everton striker has distanced himself from taking the job on a permanent basis, he will now be in charge for a third successive match with the visit of the Foxes.
