Everton v Oldham Athletic

Everton manager David Moyes has admitted these are exciting times for Everton Football Club, and eagerly anticipates the visit of John Sheridan's Oldham to Goodison Park

David Moyes

'It is exciting - there is a lot of excitement going on at Everton at the moment.

'We always look forward to the FA Cup and it is something you want to do well in if you can.'

'We have watched them a few times and they have done great, John Sheridan did teriffically with them last year and they are back up and running again now. They have done really well away from home.

'We know it will be tough, but all FA Cup games are like that and you never know when the shocks are going to come.

'We have been involved in one ourselves and we don't want that to happen again.'

Everton Team News:

Everton have a number of injury concerns ahead of the game.

Alan Stubbs and Leighton Baines may well return but doubts still hang over the fitness of Joseph Yobo and Tim Cahill, who may not be risked.

Leon Osman and Iain Turner are still recovering from long-term injuries.

Player to watch: Steven Pienaar

A lot of the creative spark rested on his shoulders during Everton's last outing.

The Blues managed a good 2-0 away victory over Gareth Southgate's Middlesbrough without Tim Cahill or Mikel Arteta, and they may have to do without again tomorrow.

Steven will be Everton's creative outlet in what will most likely be an otherwise workmanlike midfield.

Oldham Team News:

Oldham's hopes of a giant killing may well be undone by an extensive injury list and bans.

They hope that key players Craig Davies, Lee Hughes, Mark Crossley and the influential Sean Gregan will be fit enough to take part however.

Player to watch: Craig Davies

Apparently the lad has tremendous pace and looks set to give England international Joleon Lescott a torrid time.

Well, only time will tell!

COME ON EVERTON !!! Nothing will host you down. You must take them seriously and slain them painfully !!! Don't give them a chance. You can win them only you face them seriously. Although got a lot of injury there, but still... use your top form to sink them and continus to maintain your high form. All the best in the campaign in sinking Oldham. Good luck Everton !!!
