Pat admits to being disappointed with the two goals his side gave away in the first half at Goodison Park, but paid tribute to a fine individual goal from John Sutton.
"I thought Everton had a game plan, they don't mess around and get it straight back down the middle and the front two are lively.
"It tended to give us a bit of a problem, but we knew all about it. We saw it on video so we knew what they were capable of doing.
"I was a little bit disappointed with the two goals we gave away, I thought they were poor goals. We've been good at the back and kept clean sheets so they were poor goals from our side of the fence.
"I think we had possession in good areas and didn't make the most of it. Even in the second half when I think we picked our game up and had a lot of ball again - we never made the best of it.
"The goal was a little bit out of the blue and I would call that an individual goal. It's put us right back in the game again, which is important.
"It's game on and they've now got everything to play for. They've just got to show a little bit more courage on the ball at home."
Coach Pat Holland says it is now 'game on' for his side against Everton in the Youth Cup return next week.
