Howard on verge of Everton record

Tim Howard has five games left to make another entry into Everton's record books.

The United States international recorded his 14th Premier League clean sheet of the campaign during Sunday's 1-0 win over Derby County to move within one of Neville Southall's best of 15, set in 1995-96.

Howard already boasts one Goodison Park best in that he became the first goalkeeper with an average of conceding less than one goal a game in his first 50 appearances and now he has his sights set on another target.

He came close last season to achieving the feat but was denied on the final day of the campaign when Didier Drogba scored for Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. "I am really happy with the situation here and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. "Joleon (Lescott) and Joseph (Yobo) have been at the back most of the season and I feel very comfortable with those guys. But it's been the same when Jags has been there too."
