A number of Everton fans have taken to Twitter to give their thoughts on Goodison Park academy prodigy Nathan Broadhead's goalscoring display for loan club Burton Albion in their League Cup triumph over Premier League side Bournemouth.

In a match where the action had to be stopped three times due to floodlight failure and nearly half an hour of time had to be added on at the end, the Toffees loanee struck in the second  half to all but kill off the Cherries after the Brewers opened the scoring in the opening 15 minutes.

 

 

Burton's breakthrough came in the 14th minute when the unmarked Oliver Sarkic volleyed home on the edge of the six-yard box following a far-post cross from Reece Hutchinson, and the scorer turned provider for Broadhead, teeing up the ball for the Everton youngster to slide home.

Here is what some of the Everton fans said on social media regarding their player's exploits on the night:

Broadhead, who joined the Everton academy aged 10, was an important member of David Unsworth's Under-23s squad that won the Premier League 2 title as well as the Premier League Cup last term, crucially grabbing four goals and three assists in the process.

The 21-year-old winger, a Wales youth international, featured in every single league game for the U23s last term and only failed to complete a full match on three occasions, all of which helped to earn him the Under-23s Player of the Season award, and prior to his loan switch to Burton, he penned a new contract with the Toffees.
