Everton striker Beckford missed Cup defeat being stuck in traffic

Everton striker Jermaine Beckford missed their FA Cup defeat to Reading after being stuck in traffic!

In-form Beckford could only make the bench after being caught up in traffic on the M62.

Moyes said: "Jermaine had been stuck in an accident, so he wasn't available to be selected.

"It can happen. It was a road accident and it wasn't as if the boy left late or anything. It was just one of those things.

"Anybody can get stuck in traffic nowadays."
