Moyes Eyes Mirallas Goal Glut
Boss hopes Oldham goal will spark scoring run for Belgian.
David Moyes wants Kevin Mirallas' FA Cup strike against Oldham to open up the floodgates for the Belgian attacker.
Summer signing Mirallas was a 20-goal top scorer for Greek outfit Olympiakos last season but netted what was just his fifth Everton goal against the Latics.
Of those, only one has come in the Premier League, though a major mitigating factor has been the winger’s wretched fortune with injuries.
Moyes last week called for the 25-year-old to rediscover his best form and hopes Tuesday's strike signifies the beginning of a fruitful end to the 2012/13 campaign.
Speaking exclusively to evertontv, the Blues boss said: "Hopefully it will give him a little bit of confidence.
"He's not really got himself back to the fitness level we'd have hoped, so it was good to get him a bit longer in the game [on Tuesday].
"We need him to score goals. We brought him here to score goals and create goals and we've been missing that a little bit, so hopefully he can keep it up now and start getting a few more."
