Boss Monitoring Jagielka And Pienaar

by Matthew Gamble @efc_mattgamble

Roberto Martinez will continue to monitor the fitness of Phil Jagielka and Steven Pienaar this week.

Both players are doubts for Saturday’s visit of Cardiff to Goodison Park.

Jagielka has missed the last two games with a hamstring problem, while Pienaar was substituted during the second half of last weekend’s game at Arsenal.

Martinez said: "Steven had to come off so we'll assess him over the next couple of days.

"But we'll make a really late decision on Phil in terms of the weekend just to make sure he is fully fit for the remainder of the season. He's recovering really well."

Arouna Kone, Darron Gibson, Bryan Oviedo and Lacina Traore are all still out.
