Moyes Rues Mistakes

by Matthew Gamble @efc_mattgamble

David Moyes was left to rue mistakes after Everton had to settle for a 1-1 draw against Stoke.

Ryan Shawcross' own goal was cancelled out by Kenwyne Jones but not before Leon Osman had missed a great chance for the Blues.

Moyes was unhappy with both those two key incidents.

"I didn't think we played that well today," he told evertontv. "But we had a great chance to make it 2-0 before half-time through Leon Osman, but we didn't get it.

"I've told Tim [Howard] that I expect him to save the header from which Kenwyne Jones scores from. I'm disappointed that we didn't come away with a little bit more."

Despite his disappointment, Moyes was keen to point out that not many sides have any type of success at the Britannia and that his side's unbeaten run does continue.

"We have been playing really well but I didn't think we played that well today," continued the manager. "I thought we made the wrong decisions at times; when to play and when not to play, and because of that it caught us out a little bit.

"We defended well and had a couple of scary moments that were brought on by ourselves, but I didn't think we were under desperate pressure at any time.

"I don't know if I would have taken a point beforehand but that shows how well we are doing at the moment.

"It was a hard game, credit to the lads because they kept going and made sure we got something out of it."
