Coleman happy to back in natural role

We all wondered for a while if Seamus Coleman would evolve into Everton's answer down the right flank.

The 24-year-old Republic of Ireland international joined Everton as right back from Sligo Rovers, but with his versatility and his ability to get at players he has adopted the right wing role quite a bit.

But this season has seen a few things change. David Moyes has mainly used Phil Neville in central midfield whilst Tony Hibbert has struggled for fitness due to injuries.

Couple that with Kevin Mirallas in sensation form down the right wing and Coleman has dropped back into his more natural right back role.

"I`ve really enjoyed it, It`s been a while really since I`ve played there for Everton. The last time I had a run of games there was probably when I was at Blackpool (on-loan in 2010) but I`ve really enjoyed it. he told The Echo.

Mirallas and Coleman have already begun to forge a decent partnership down the right wing over the past eight games and Coleman hopes that will continue.

He added: "I need to keep doing well because there`s some good players who`ll be wanting to come in. It`s different to playing in midfield, but I`ve always said it`s my natural position."

At times going forward is absolutely brilliant but needs to polish up his defending qualities. he is undoubtedly making progress though and when you consider he cost us 60,000 only! he's not a badden at that!
