Everton striker Jermaine Beckford has been told he does not need to change his game to succeed in the Premier League.[LNB] The 26-year-old joined from Leeds on a free transfer in the summer after scoring 31 goals in their promotion to the Championship.[LNB]However, he has found the net just once at his new club - in the Carling Cup - and has failed to establish himself in the first team.[LNB]However, after impressing for the reserves in the 5-0 win over Blackpool, in which he scored, second-string boss Alan Stubbs has backed the striker to come good in the top flight.[LNB]"We wanted him to play on the defender's shoulder. A lot of his goals at Leeds came from him running on to things. Defenders don't like it when you play just on the shoulder," he said.[LNB]"On another day he could have had three or four. But he scored and hopefully he'll take confidence from that because he admitted he was probably a bit rusty."[LNB]
