Wolves v Everton

Everton suffered a frustrating 0-0 defeat at Molineux but still gained ground on Aston Villa in the fight for a European place.

The point gained closed the gap on the Midlands side as they were thrashed by Chelsea.

Louis Saha's shot that struck the bar was as close as Everton came, while sub Dan Gosling had a decent late chance saved.

Everton started brightly and in the 6th minute a slick one-two between Saha and Steven Pienaar saw the South African square for Leon Omsan but Marcus Hahnemann saved well with his outstretched right leg.

Osman was in again shortly afterwards, shooting wide from a corner inside ten mins.

Then Jack Rodwell teed the same player up again after 15 mins but the shot was partially blocked and Hahnemann easily saved.

The first sign of a threat from Wolves came just a couple of minutes later when Ronald Zubar lashed the ball across from the byline and Phil Jagielka glanced it behind.

But it was soon back to the other end. Baines fired a left foot volley straight at Hahnemann on the half hour but the American stopper was nowhere near Saha's 38th minute rifled effort that struck the bar.

Tim Cahill spurned Everton's final chance of the half, sending a left foot volley way over before Christophe Berra did the same at the other end.

Rodwell shot tamely from range at the start of the second half and then Saha had a great chance when Osman whipped in a perfect curling delivery that he could only head over the bar under pressure from Craddock.

Matt Jarvis had a snapshot for Wolves before Baines' 55th minute free kick deflected over off the wall with Cahill glancing the resultant corner just wide.

Kevin Foley curled an effort over and then Zubar was wasteful when well placed in the Everton box as the home side tried to wrestle control of proceedings.

Moyes freshened up his attack with the introduction of Yakubu but it was Osman who sent another effort off target witrh 15 minutes left.

Pienaar had a volley deflected wide and soon Gosling was on.The ex-Plymouth man had a great chance when he collected Cahill's knockdown but Hahnemann was out quickly to smother.
