'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Coleman concerns

Everton drew 2-2 with Tranmere Rovers last night but an injury to Seamus Coleman has stolen the headlines.

Everton led twice against the League Two side with goals from Steven Naismith and Leon Osman cancelled out by Cole Stockton and Jason Rowe.

Roberto Martinez used the match to field a number of players in a bid to give everyone a decent run out during pre-season.

However Seamus Coleman limped off with a hamstring injury in the second-half and is now a slight concern going into the other friendly matches.

'It was a bit more precautionary,'

'He felt his hamstring and obviously since the start of pre-season we have accumulated a lot of volume and that type of reaction is normal.
Martinez told the Echo.

He continued: 'We will have to assess him well and prepare him well for the next work. We don't want to miss Seamus and so it was more about avoiding risks rather than any big worry.

'It is important we get the measurement right before we get to Thailand.'
