Baines Misses Out Again

by Matthew Gamble @efc_mattgamble

Everton manager David Moyes expects to be without Leighton Baines and Jack Rodwell for Saturday's visit of Fulham.

Both players are currently out with hamstring problems.

Moyes also reported that he had no new fitness concerns following last weekend's draw at Manchester United.

"I would expect pretty much everyone to be fit," said the Blues boss. "Apart from Jack Rodwell and Leighton Baines, who are the only two who won't be available."

Rodwell has been out since before Christmas with hamstring trouble, suffering a couple of setbacks when on his way back to first team action.

Baines, meanwhile, suffered a small tear during the FA Cup semi-final defeat to Liverpool but hopes to be back before the end of the campaign.
