Everton boss Moyes pleased Jelavic snapped scoring drought

Everton boss David Moyes was delighted to see Nikica Jelavic break his scoring drought in victory over Sunderland.

Moyes was pleased to see his main striker back among the goals.

"He looked delighted (when he scored) because he didn't have a good game," said the Scot. "But I can tell you of a lot of centre-forwards who don't have good games and score - we can live with that.

"I didn't want to take our goalscorer off, especially when you are a goal down, because you want to try to find a way and we hoped something might drop to him.

"I am sure that will help him and hopefully we will start to see a run of goals from him again.

"I don't think we found him in the box or he didn't find enough space for us to get him the ball.

"But people who are centre-forwards will tell you they lose confidence when they don't score goals and regain it when they do.

"So it was good to see him and Felli scoring again. They are the people who we rely on a lot for goals and they came up trumps."
