Moyes looking to keep run going

10 November 2010 10:29
David Moyes is demanding greater consistency from his Everton side despite being impressed by their recent form.[LNB] Everton have overcome a dreadful start to the season which left them bottom of the Premier League after six games without a win.[LNB]The Merseysiders are now unbeaten in six heading into tonight's home clash with Bolton - a sequence that has included wins over Liverpool, Birmingham and Stoke.[LNB]Those results earned Moyes the manager of the month award for October and restored the stability that saw Everton lose just two of their final 24 games last season.[LNB]Moyes said: "If you look at our record at the end of last season and how well we have done now - we didn't start the season quite so well but I think we are on maybe five or six defeats for the whole year, if you exclude the cups.[LNB]"So, overall we have had a pretty good period but we need to keep that going.[LNB]"To win a league you need to do that throughout the season, not a bit one year and a bit another year - that is no good.[LNB]"Hopefully we can try and get on a run now. We are on a bit of a run but we want it to be better."[LNB]Moyes' manager of the month accolade was his third of 2010 but the Scot feels everyone at Goodison Park deserves credit.[LNB]He said: "It was a reward for the players and staff.[LNB]"The way we started the season was not the way expected, we were all disappointed.[LNB]"The expectations we had set - and suddenly it sort of drained away.[LNB]"It was great how the players got themselves back together, we steadied things and got a few wins. We had a pretty good month."[LNB]Everton tonight host a Bolton side enjoying a fine start to the campaign having shown signs of considerable improvement since avoiding relegation last season.[LNB]Manager Owen Coyle has instilled new belief since taking charge in January and the Trotters travel to Goodison on the back of an impressive 4-2 defeat of Tottenham.[LNB]Moyes said: "The squad hasn't changed that much but I think there has been a development.[LNB]"Owen has done a great job. After rescuing Bolton a bit and making sure they stayed in the division, he has got them at the right end of the league."[LNB]Midfielder Marouane Fellaini is in contention to return for Everton after missing four games with a hamstring injury.[LNB]Jack Rodwell, coming back from a serious ankle problem, is again likely to be on the bench after two games as an unused substitute.
