David Moyes believes the return of Kevin Mirallas will aid Everton as they strive to rediscover their scoring touch.

The Belgian forward made his long-awaited comeback from injury with a second-half cameo at Southampton and injected a fresh attacking impetus into a Blues frontline that was struggling to break down a stubborn Saints rearguard.

The Toffees have found it difficult to keep clean sheets this season but the joy of recording two successive shut-outs has been tempered by a lack of goals.

Nikica Jelavic missed the game's golden chance when he miscued his shot following fine approach work from Victor Anichebe.

But Moyes insists he has the firepower at his disposal to ensure the Blues' positive opening to the campaign does not go to waste. 

"We have Kevin Mirallas back and he made an impact when he came on," he said. "So did Victor Anichebe and I can see the goals coming with the players we have available.

"Jela's was a real big chance. But we are a little bit like that at the moment. We are doing okay but this time last year we were maybe nicking the goals and at the moment we are just not doing that. But it will come.

"We were fortunate to go into half time at 0-0. But then I thought we were a bit unfortunate not to get a goal or two in the second period.

"Southampton stopped us from playing and I think they have done that with a few teams. But we had a word at half-time, tried to organise things a little better, and I thought we started the second half better.

"In the end we are a little bit disappointed we didn't sneak that win."
