Toffees win delights Moyes

Manager David Moyes praised his Everton team after they secured a 2-0 victory away to SK Brann in the first leg of their UEFA Cup round of 32 tie.
Goals from Leon Osman and Victor Anichebe gave the Toffees a comfortable cushion for the return leg at Goodison Park, but Moyes has warned against complacency.
He said: "In the first half we were not going anywhere, we were not passing the ball quickly enough and we were not showing enough pace around the pitch.
"Brann are a good side. They have just won the Norwegian championship and beaten a top side like Rosenborg to do it, so we know we have produced a very good victory.
"But we needed to improve after the break. We seemed to be trying to do everything perfectly, it was causing us problems and we were losing possession.
"But we got better as the game went on and Leon and Victor scored fine goals.
"I will not start thinking about the next round until we have completed the job, the second leg being next week.
"We need to show respect because Brann showed themselves to be a very good side and we know they will come to Goodison desperate to get revenge for this."
