Danjuma hits late Everton winner at Doncaster


Arnaut Danjuma of Everton shoots past Joseph Olowu of Doncaster Rovers to score winning goal during the Carabao Cup Second Round match between Doncaster Rovers and Everton FC at The Eco-Power Stadium on August 30, 2023 in Doncaster, United Kingdom. 

Arnaut Danjuma struck an 88th-minute winner as Premier League Everton came from behind to beat League Two's bottom side Doncaster Rovers and reach the third round of the Carabao Cup.

An upset looked on the cards when Joe Ironside put the hosts ahead a minute before half-time, glancing in a header from Tommy Rowe's whipped ball.

But new Everton signing Beto levelled with a goal on his debut, reaching an Abdoulaye Doucoure ball to calmly poke past Rovers goalkeeper Ian Lawlor.

And Danjuma netted 15 minutes later to give his side a much-needed first win of the season and a third-round meeting with Aston Villa at Villa Park, in the week commencing 25 September.
