Everton boss David Moyes could not hide his frustration after seeing his side miss a number of chances in a 0-0 draw at Wolves on Saturday.[LNB] The Toffees had chances early and late in the game that would have lifted them level with Aston Villa and Liverpool in the Premier League.[LNB]Yet Wolves enjoyed plenty of possession, had a few opportunities themselves and merited a point from a feisty encounter.[LNB]Moyes said: "We missed an opportunity to get another two points but it was another clean sheet and I don't think we played badly.[LNB]"We created a lot of opportunities but didn't finish them off.[LNB]"We had two or three good opportunities in the first 10 minutes and I thought overall we were the most likely to get a goal.[LNB]"Certainly defensively we did a good job. Kevin Doyle was in good form and we kept him really quiet.[LNB]"I expected a scrap but overall I thought we defended well and limited Wolves to very few, or no, opportunities and created quite a lot ourselves."[LNB]The result was a disappointment for Everton after an impressive midweek win at Manchester City but they have still lost just two of their last 18 games.[LNB]With six matches remaining they are still firmly in contention for place in the Europa League.[LNB]Moyes added: "We are just going to try to go to the next game and see where it goes.[LNB]"I though we played well enough to get a result and, after the game in midweek, we have taken four points from two the games.[LNB]"That is a decent haul so I can't be too disappointed about that."[LNB]Wolves still have work to do to secure their Premier League status but, with 32 points from as many games, they are inching closer to survival.[LNB]Hull's victory means they are now just five points above the relegation zone but manager Mick McCarthy was happy to take a draw.[LNB]McCarthy said: "I'm delighted with a point, I'd have taken that before we started.[LNB]"They are as good as anything that has been here.[LNB]"There was more chance of it being none than three, so I'll take my point. I'm absolutely thrilled with it."[LNB]Louis Saha hit the bar for Everton while Leon Osman failed to make the most of three good early chances.[LNB]Two of them were dealt with by Wolves goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann, who was in the right place to frustrate the visitors throughout.[LNB]McCarthy said: "He was terrific, he has been since getting into the side.[LNB]"But they have all had to work hard. It has been workmanlike, full of desire, effort and honesty.[LNB]"While we have that we will always have a chance.[LNB]"We have our moments of quality and we will certainly battle it out with everybody."[LNB]Everton midfielder Dan Gosling will have a scan on his knee after a collision with Hahnemann late in the game.
