    Jan 13:  David Weir was an early casualty against Spurs, going off injured after just 7 mins, as Everton made an encouraging start.  A number of good chances to score were thwarted, with Everton making lots of pressure in the second half, and Campbell hitting the post, but no goals.

    Jan 12:  Gary Naysmith is the latest injury-list addition: a hamstring problem rules him out of the Spurs game.
