Striker scores decisive goal against Derby County as Toffees earn first Division 1 win in five

Ellis Simms scored a stoppage-time winner as Everton beat 10-man Derby County 2-1 to move up to seventh in Premier League 2 Division 1.

Following a goalless first half, Manasse Mampala put the Toffees ahead on 67 minutes when he fired a brilliant left-footed shot beyond Henrich Ravas.

Derby levelled with nine minutes remaining as substitute Cameron Cresswell finished off an excellent team move.

However, the visitors had defender Jordan Brown sent off in the 90th minute before Simms raced through to score shortly after.

Victory puts Everton on to 22 points and Derby stay fourth on 27 points despite a second successive defeat.
