David Moyes insisted it just was not his side´s day as Everton lost their 100% record at Reading - where England striker Andy Johnson missed a golden chance to snatch a late draw in the 1-0 defeat.

A late first-half strike from Stephen Hunt proved enough to settled matters, but substitute James McFadden could have snatched a draw during the closing moments when his chip come back off the crossbar, with Johnson unable to stab home the rebound from inside the six-yard box.

The Everton manager tried to look for positives, saying: "I think the goalkeeper actually pushed it on to the post. When you look at it, the ball came off the bar and hits [Ulises] de la Cruz on the arm, so it is a penalty kick. Andy changes direction then and hits the post."
