Yakubu claims Everton winner

Published Add your comment

Ayegbeni Yakubu struck his first goal since April to maintain Everton's Barclays Premier League revival as they recorded a 1-0 victory over Stoke.

The Nigeria international, linked with West Ham in the summer and criticised for lacking match fitness early in the campaign, hit the only goal of a cagey Goodison Park encounter after 67 minutes.

The game only came to life in the second half but Everton deserved their victory having dominated possession and created the better of the chances.
