Second-half goals from Leon Osman and Leighton Baines plunged Blackburn further into Barclays Premier League relegation trouble as Everton claimed a 2-0 win at Goodison Park.

Steve Kean's lacklustre Rovers side, now without a win in nine games, struggled to contain Everton at Goodison Park and were punished when a deflected Osman shot went in after 54 minutes.

The visitors hardly tested home goalkeeper Tim Howard and Baines put the game beyond them with a 75th-minute penalty after Phil Jones fouled Seamus Coleman.
