Coleman enjoying his football

Everton wideman Seamus Coleman has revealed that he is enjoying playing further up the right flank.

The 22-year-old Irishman is a full-back by trade but Toffees manager David Moyes has utilised him as a winger in recent games.

Coleman has been in good form of late and on his return to Blackpool at the weekend, the club where he spent a spell on loan last season, he scored in a 2-2 draw.

On his more attack-minded role, he said: "It's a different position, but I really enjoy it.

"You have to play where the boss says, but I'm getting game time, which is great.

"I've had a few games at Everton now, but I know I'm not a regular yet. I just need to keep impressing."

Coleman, formerly of Sligo Rovers, played nine times in the Championship for the Tangerines last term as they won promotion via the play-offs.

He did not celebrate his effort at Bloomfield Road on Saturday, and was delighted by the reception he received from the home fans.

"It was a great reception," he told Everton's official website. "The fans were chanting just before kick-off which means that I must have done alright when I was here, so it was good.

"It was always going to be special coming back and I was looking forward to it and to get a goal was an extra bonus for me."

On not celebrating his goal, he remarked: "I wouldn't be a big celebrator anyway but I didn't want to rub it in their faces because they treated me well when I was here.

"But obviously I was chuffed inside."

The point leaves Everton 11th in the Premier League and their next outing is a home tie with Bolton on Wednesday.
