Everton eased to a routine victory against Alex Neil's side, who finished in 19th place on 34 points to join Newcastle United and Aston Villa in the Championship next season.

James McCarthy opening the scoring with a thumping first-half hit before Leighton Baines struck from the spot and Kevin Mirallas completed the victory three minutes after the interval.

Neil made two changes from the side that beat Watford 4-2 at Carrow Road on Wednesday. Matt Jarvis replaced Wes Hoolahan and frontman Cameron Jerome was included up top with loanees Dieumerci Mbokani and Patrick Bamford both missing from the matchday squad. Vadis Odjidja was joined on the substitutes' bench by Tony Andreu.
