On a night of high European drama, England striker Andrew Johnson missed two penalties - one twice taken - to give Everton a mountain to climb when they go to the Ukraine for the second-leg of this UEFA Cup tie against Metalist Kharkiv.

Metalist had two men sent-off in a crazy ending to this first-round clash, Oleksandr Babych and Seweryn Gancarczyk, but even with nine men against them, Everton could not clinch this game.

They went ahead in the first half through Joleon Lescott, and with mayhem going on at the other end they conceded a late equaliser to Brazilian midfielder Venans Zeze.
