Hunger will be the driving force for Everton when they take on The Terriers this week.

That is the message from Leon Osman, who believes the increased competition for places in the Everton ranks will drive the squad to better performances as they prepare for Wednesday's Carling Cup second round tie with Huddersfield.

Everton have started the Premier League season slowly, picking up one point from the first six available ahead of the midweek cup encounter.

But Osman points out that the options available to manager David Moyes means players will have to keep their performance levels high if they want to maintain a regular starting berth.

Osman told evertontv: "The competition for places is such that when people are playing they want to do the best they can to keep their place so that will breed better performances and better results."

The 29-year-old, who himself had to settle for a cameo appearance from the bench for Saturday's 1-1 draw with Wolves as Moyes made three changes from the team that lost at Blackburn, is desperate to help Everton win silverware and end his own wait for a major trophy.

He added: "We would like some silverware. The League Cup is a cup that we are entered into so we want to do as best as we can and hopefully go all the way."
