Naismith delighted to get off mark for Everton

Everton attacker Steven Naismith is delighted to be off the mark for his new club.

He scored the Toffees' equaliser in the 2-2 draw with Merseyside rivals Liverpool on Sunday.

It was just his third start for the club and he said: "At least I'm off the mark now for Everton and I can build on it.

"This first period is about settling in and getting used to the training.

"I never came expecting to play every week.

"But I work hard every day to get back to where I was before and this was just another step towards that."
