Republic of Ireland winger Aiden McGeady made his first Everton start at Broadhall Way as Everton overcame Stevenage 4-0 in the FA Cup fourth round.
Naismith scored twice before Dutch defender John Heitinga added a third before Magaye Gueye sealed the win. Seamus Coleman form Killybegs miss the match with a minor soft tissue injury sustained in last Monday’s 1-1 Premier League draw at West Bromwich Albion.
Glasgow-born McGeady qualifies for Ireland as his paternal grandparents are from Glassagh in Gweedore. Another Irish international, James McCarthy, whose family background and Irish qualifications are a consequence of his Annagry connections, was also on the Everton team.
Also in the FA Cup fourth round, Shane Duffy’s Yeovil Town went down 2-0 to Premier League Southampton. Guly do Prado and youngster Sam Gallagher saw off the Championship strugglers, though Town can take heart from a spirited second-half showing which nearly reaped rewards.
Derry-born Duffy is on loan at Yeovil from Everton until the end of the season and captains the Republoc of Ireland U-21s. His father Brian is from Letterkenny.
