Victor Anichebe has stated his intent to lose any ´super-sub´ reputation and secure a regular starting place with Everton after his equalising goal against Wigan.
Anichebe told evertontv: â€œI tried to rubbish that super-sub tag from the Europa League a few years back but it seems to be following me round!
â€œHopefully I can start a few more games soon. The manager keeps putting me in and then taking me out and just trying to help me really. Obviously I have had the injuries and I hadnâ€™t trained for a few days before Wigan so it is important to be careful.â€
â€œPeople were saying â€˜nice headerâ€™ to me in the dressing room, but I didnâ€™t have to do a lot,â€ he added. â€œThe quality of the cross made the goal. I just had to get something on it. I always try and thank whoever crosses the ball and this time it was Bainesy. It was a great cross and it was that which made the goal possible.â€
Introducing the Everton Mishmash!
â€œIt was a tough game. It was a really bad pitch and I think it was always going to be tough after Tuesday night. The lads put a lot of effort into beating City and Wigan are fighting for their lives and play some good football. We would have liked to have won, but given that we didnâ€™t it was important that we didnâ€™t lose.â€
