Published Add your comment

Manager David Moyes heaped praise on Ayegbeni Yakubu after the Nigeria international struck two minutes from time to sink West Ham and seal Everton a place in the semi-final of the Carling Cup.

Yakubu pounced on a defensive mix-up between Robert Green and Danny Gabiddon to score his sixth goal in four games and 10th for Everton since completing his £11.25million summer move from Middlesbrough.

"People who know about Yakubu will tell you that´s what he does," said Moyes. "His workrate and movement is fantastic. All round he´s done a great job for us."
