Toffees end Oldham's FA Cup run
Everton booked their place in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup and ended Oldham's memorable run with a routine 3-1 victory at Goodison Park.
Latics raced into the lead during their 3-2 triumph over Liverpool in round four and against David Moyes' men in a dramatic 2-2 draw 10 days ago. But Everton placed their opponents under pressure from the first whistle this time and Kevin Mirallas got the breakthrough when he converted Darron Gibson's excellent 15th-minute cross.
Leighton Baines' penalty made it 2-0 at the interval after Connor Brown handled. Oldham's cup hero Matt Smith - Liverpool and Everton's chief tormentor in those memorable Boundary Park ties - came off the bench to claim his fourth goal of the cup run but, by that stage, Leon Osman had ensured the Toffees' smooth passage into the next round and a home quarter-final against Wigan.
