Foundation to Howard faith

Published Add your comment

Goalkeeper Tim Howard believes Everton have the solid defensive foundation to set themselves up for a UEFA Cup last 32 triumph in Norway on Wednesday night.

The Toffees are missing key players Mikel Arteta (groin) and Steven Pienaar (ankle) ahead of their first leg clash with Brann Bergen in a tight, 17,000 capacity stadium.

But Howard views the contest as a launch pad for greater success and said: "It will be a tough, difficult game. We are away from home and we have studied what we can find out about them."
