Everton have confirmed Duncan Ferguson will continue as caretaker boss for Wednesday's Carabao Cup quarter-final against Leicester.
Ferguson has taken charge of the club's last two Premier League matches following the sacking of Marco Silva on 5 December, guiding the Toffees to a home win over Chelsea and a draw at Manchester United.
The former Everton striker has distanced himself from taking the job on a permanent basis but he will again be in charge for the cup tie against the Foxes.
The club said in a statement: "A sell-out crowd will welcome Ferguson and his players out of the tunnel at Goodison Park for the visit of Brendan Rodgers' side as the Blues look to book a place in the last four of the competition.
"Ferguson oversaw a stirring 3-1 victory over Chelsea in Everton's last Goodison appearance before leading the team to a 1-1 draw at in-form Manchester United on Sunday.
"John Ebbrell, Francis Jeffers and goalkeeper coach Alan Kelly will again be alongside Ferguson in the home dugout."
