Nikica Jelavic scores his first goal.

Blackburn were defeated for the first time in pre-season as an experienced Everton side ran out 3-1 winners.

After a bright start that saw Chris Taylor shoot narrowly wide, Rovers fell behind to a deflected Kevin Mirallas shot.

The Toffees made a number of half-time changes, and Nikica Jelavic came off the bench to score twice. First, he headed home a Steven Pienaar corner after 55 minutes and then slotted home the rebound 12 minutes from the end after Jake Kean had saved the Croatian's initial shot.

Gary Bowyer's side did get a late consolation through Scott Dann's back post header from a Morten Gamst-Pedersen corner.
