Salford have come a long way since the Class of 92 increased their profile and resources but a Premier League giant-killing will have to wait for now.

The central defender vindicated his manager’s decision by giving Everton an early lead, losing Jason Lowe and soaring above Jordan Turnbull inside the Salford six-yard box to head Sigurdsson’s corner past Vaclav Hladky.

Graham Alexander’s side tested Everton’s patience, and no doubt that of manager Carlo Ancelotti as several fringe players failed to grasp their moment to impress, but the experienced heads of Michael Keane and Gylfi Sigurdsson saw the hosts through to a third-round meeting with Fleetwood Town.

The Salford manager will have taken greater satisfaction at half-time in the defensive organisation that limited Everton to few clear-cut chances after their commanding start.

It proved a monumental step too as Premier League superiority told from the very start.

Keane was the only survivor from Sunday’s starting line-up at Tottenham as Ancelotti rotated some legs and put others in the shop window.

With no central defenders available on the bench it fell to left-back Lucas Digne to replace the youngster alongside Keane.
