Everton caretaker manager David Unsworth says he has heard nothing new about the vacant manager's job at Goodison Park.

Unsworth took over on a temporary basis when Ronald Koeman was sacked at the end of last month.

The former Everton player has had a tough start in the new role losing his first three games in all competitions, but things picked up last weekend when Everton came back from 2-0 down to beat Watford 3-2 at Goodison Park. The result lifted the club out of the bottom three.

Unsworth, who has been taking part in a charity sleepover at Goodison Park, was asked if there was any update on the managerial situation.

"Very much as it was after the game," he said. "I just continue to do my best, give my all for the club.

"There's no news to report, I certainly haven't been told any more on what's going on. I just continue to come in every day, give my best with the staff and the players and we'll just see where it takes us and what will be, will be."

Unsworth is one of dozens of people, including members of Everton's Under-23s team, who have given up their time to sleep out for the night at the stadium.

The Goodison Sleepout is now in its second year and raises money for the club's charity, Everton in the Community. The aim is to help homeless people in Liverpool who are forced to sleep out in the cold every night.
