Everton boss Moyes grateful to ice-cool Baines

Everton boss David Moyes was grateful to Leighton Baines for his ice-cold penalty in their 2-2 draw at Wigan Athletic.

Baines slammed the late spot-kick high past Ali Al Habsi, following Maynor Figueroa's foul on Kevin Mirallas, to give the visitors a point that boss Moyes insisted was the least they deserved for their efforts.

Moyes said: "Leighton's penalty was fantastic and his performance was up there as good as anything.

"We needed it and he drove us on, and we showed great character because we weren't getting a lot of decisions going for us."
