Moyes aims for better performance

“I enjoyed the result but I think I would have liked the performance to have been better,” he said. “We got the goals at crucial times and scoring just before half-time made things easier.

Blackburn missed two good early chances, with Morten Pedersen guilty of missing a James Beattie style sitter (sorry Biffa). Things could have been very different had that gone in.

“I saw Blackburn in midweek and I they played well, which they did again today for the first 15 minutes. With Bellamy up front you are always worried about his pace and the way he stretches teams. It can be difficult to keep the midfield tight.” Moyes continued.

With Cahill suspended for our next game against United, and a "shut up shop" performance expected, Everton will almost certainly put Phil Neville in midfield to try and contain Paul Scholes, with Nuno Valente coming in a full back.
