[Archived] News Article -> 2011/12 Half-Time: Everton 1 Rovers 0

Recommended Posts

Rovers trail at half-time following a controversial opening goal from Tim Cahill. David Dunn and Scott Dann have hit the woodwork and Rovers have gone close on several occasions, but so far have nothing to show for their good play.

It was the away side that started the better and Rovers soon had Everton on the back foot and penned in their own half. Rovers constantly threatened and went close to taking the lead when Scott Dann's looping header came back off the crossbar, but it was Dunn who wasted their best chance when he failed to really test Howard after great work from Hoilett on the left.

Despite the constant pressure, it was Everton that took the lead against the run of play after Rovers had failed to clear a corner. Donovan put the ball back into the box and Fellaini appeared to control the ball with his arm before Cahill fired home from close range. There were immediate protests from the away team, but the goal stood.

The goal completely changed the flow of the game, but Rovers went excruciatingly close to levelling things up when Goodwillie's shot was deflected into the path of David Dunn and his first-time volley came back off the inside of the post with Howard beaten.
