Moyes backs Yakubu to rediscover form

Everton manager David Moyes is backing Ayegbeni Yakubu to end his scoring drought and is not worried about the striker's lack of goals.

After scoring three times in Everton's first four matches the goals have dried up.

The Nigeria international has gone nine games without finding the net and his last Premier League strike was over two months ago in the 3-2 win at Stoke on September 14.

Yakubu will return to the Everton line-up for Sunday's league encounter against his former side Middlesbrough after missing last weekend's 3-1 win at West Ham with a heel complaint.

And his manager has told him not to worry about his misfiring form.

"Centre forwards will always tell you that they go through periods without scoring and they lose a bit of confidence when they are not scoring,'' said Moyes.

"Once we get Yak scoring again though I think everybody knows what he is capable of.''

Everton have managed to win their last three matches thanks to late strikes in games that Moyes admits have not been pleasant on the eye.

The Scot says although he will happily take victories in any form, he would prefer his Everton team to be playing attractive and entertaining football at the same time.

And he is looking to last season's fifth-place Premier League finish as the inspiration for an improvement in Everton's play.

He added: "People always tell you that if you are not playing well but win then that is a great sign so I have to take that as a positive.

"I will always take winning, it is the game and the business we are in but I want a bit of pride in the way we perform as well.

"After last year with the standards we set I am very keen to get back to those standards as quickly as we can.''
