Oppositions View: David Moyes
Everton manager David Moyes watched his side pick up all the points against Birmingham at St Andrews on Saturday and declared himself relieved that the first win of the season finally arrived.

Everton came to St Andrews without a league win but Roger Johnson put the ball into his own net and Tim Cahill finished the job off in injury time.

Now the Everton boss is looking to go on to get a top half of table finish.

"Players played well today especially as Birmingham had a really good home record," said Moyes.

"The first half was pleasing and how we haven`t scored three or four goals is beyond me.

"I`m not exactly jumping around over the result as I expect us to win more games.

"People have been saying that our performances haven`t merited our position but today we got our reward.

"We have taken four points from two difficult games at Fulham and Birmingham - teams I expect to finish in the top half - so I am quite pleased.

"We tried to play good football and we will look to go into the next game and try to win again."

In all honesty, thought we did deserve all 3pts, we created more (and better) chances, we were rarely troubled, but all I have to say is thankyou Roger Johnson, if it wasnt for him thought it wouldve been another 0-0 draw.

Cant argue with you Rob, Everton were the better team and deserved the three points. I thought you would have scored without Johnson.
