Everton have recalled left-back Luke Garbutt from his loan spell at Colchester United, following a serious injury to Bryan Oviedo.

Costa Rica international Oviedo suffered a horrific double leg break in Saturday's FA Cup win over Stevenage, and the Toffees have now taken the decision to bring back Garbutt as cover for Leighton Baines.
