Fellaini in frame for Toffees
Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini is back in contention for tomorrow's Barclays Premier League clash against Bolton.
The 22-year-old has missed the last four games after suffering a hamstring injury while on international duty with Belgium last month.
Manager David Moyes said: "He is getting better and has got a chance. He will be in the squad."
Fellow midfielder Jack Rodwell is again likely to be on the bench as he continues his recovery from ankle ligament damage. Leon Osman (ankle), Victor Anichebe (knee) and Ross Barkley (broken leg) remain on the sidelines.
The Toffees are unbeaten in six games - a sequence which includes wins over Birmingham, Liverpool and Stoke - and are confident of improving upon last season's eighth place.
But Moyes still has concerns. He felt his side let an opportunity slip as they fell behind twice before claiming a 2-2 draw at Blackpool on Saturday and their inability to create and take goalscoring chances is a continuing problem.
He said: "We have got to try to get one or two added - we are desperately short of options up front.
"Maybe the final ball into the box hasn't been good enough to give those boys a chance as well.
"We have got to look at options to see if we can find ways of scoring more goals - that's what's missing.
"Overall our play has been good, our approach play has been good in nearly all the games but when we get 25 yards out we can just peter out a bit.
"Let's hope though we are just about to give someone a few goals' hiding."
Martin Petrov could be in line for a recall to Bolton's first XI.
Petrov, fit again after a slight hamstring problem, came off the bench to score the final goal in Wanderers' 4-2 win over Tottenham on Saturday and may be rewarded with a starting berth at Goodison Park in place of Matt Taylor.
Manager Owen Coyle expects to have the same squad available as for the Spurs game, with Joey O'Brien, Ricardo Gardner, Jlloyd Samuel and Sean Davis all still sidelined.
Coyle had to make the journey to Goodison Park twice last season in the Barclays Premier League, first with Burnley and then Bolton having moved from one club to the other in January.
He was defeated 2-0 on both occasions and is expecting another testing time.
"I remember the Everton game very clearly - we (Bolton) were terrific at Everton and very comfortable in the game," Coyle said.
"Then we had a player sent off and Mikel Arteta moved a free-kick a number of yards and curled one in the corner.
"I remember that feeling of disappointment because we did ever so well, but that is how tough it is at Everton.
"I went there with Burnley as well last year and it was 0-0, before we had a man sent off as well and lost a goal.
"So we need to be concentrated and focused for the duration of the match, knowing that Everton have quality."
Brilliant Beckford snatches point
Jermaine Beckford hit a brilliant late equaliser as 10-man Everton snatched a point in a 1-1 draw against Bolton.
The Toffees were destined for their first defeat in seven Barclays Premier League games when the former Leeds striker fired over Jussi Jaaskelainen deep into injury time at Goodison Park.
Ivan Klasnic had come off the bench to give Bolton the lead 11 minutes from time and worse followed as Marouane Fellaini was sent off for kicking Paul Robinson.
The Belgian, returning to the side after four games out, could have few complaints as frustration appeared to be getting the better of Everton.
The hosts had squandered a number of chances to take the lead, many of them through the returning Louis Saha, as manager David Moyes' complaints about a lack of goals again rang true.
But Bolton, who also hit bar through Matt Taylor moments before Klasnic's effort, could not hang on for a win that would have taken them fifth.
The visitors had twice caused anxiety in the Everton defence early on, first as captain Kevin Davies broke the line to reach a long ball and Johan Elmander forcing Sylvain Distin to block.
Everton's first opportunity fell to Diniyar Bilyaletdinov, surprisingly preferred to Seamus Coleman, but the Russian skewed his shot well wide.
Bilyaletdinov had another chance as Leighton Baines found him six yards out with a fine cross but he failed to connect with his volley.
Elmander put a simple header wide from a similar distance after Taylor headed a corner back across goal.
Saha, on his first start since August, showed great skill to beat Robinson on the edge of the box but the Frenchman shot straight at Jaaskelainen.
Bilyaletdinov had a good shooting chance after being fed in the box by Steven Pienaar but lost momentum by cutting inside onto his left foot and Bolton recovered.
Saha had two shots cleared off the line in quick succession as Everton put the Bolton goal under more pressure.
The first chance came after Jaaskelainen failed to claim a Phil Neville cross but Gretar Steinsson blocked at point-blank range.
Saha then rose to meet the resulting Mikel Arteta corner but Lee Chung-yong volleyed out from under the crossbar.
Elmander inadvertently set up Fellaini when he trick to flick away another Everton corner but the Belgian blasted over the bar.
Bolton made the initial running after the restart and had the first chance as Davies headed forward and Lee squared for Elmander but the striker's first-time shot was deflected wide by Baines.
That resulted in the first of three Bolton corners in quick succession.
The visitors again went close from the second of them as Stuart Holden met Taylor's cross with a glancing header but Tim Howard clawed the ball out.
Everton responded as Bilyaletdinov drove at Jaaskelainen from 20 yards and Baines had a shot sliced narrowly over his own bar by Gary Cahill.
Zat Knight then got in Saha's way to deny the former Manchester United striker once again after good control on the edge of the box.
Moyes brought on Coleman, one of the stars of Everton's recent good run, for the frustrating Bilyaletdinov after 66 minutes.
The Irishman immediately looked a threat as he charged at the Bolton defence and cut inside but Jaaskelainen was not tested by his shot.
Holden required treatment after a kick on the ankle from Fellaini but recovered to take the corner which almost saw Bolton break the deadlock after 75 minutes.
The American picked out Taylor with his cross but the midfielder's header glanced the bar and went behind.
Bolton then grabbed the initiative as Taylor broke from deep down the right and sent over a bouncing cross for Klasnic.
With the defence frantically back-tracking, Klasnic inched ahead and just got his body to the ball to divert it in at the far post.
Everton's frustrations then started to get the better of them as Fellaini went down in a challenge from Robinson and responded by kicking out.
Referee Phil Dowd pointed the Belgian in the direction of the tunnel as Everton's night threatened to end in misery.
But Everton had one last throw of the dice and late substitute Beckford chose the perfect moment to score his first league goal for the club, chipping in from the edge of the box in time added on.
