Everton 2-1 Cardiff City: Last-gasp Coleman wins it for Toffees

Everton Goodison 2

Everton beat Cardiff City 2-1 at Goodison Park earlier today.

An injury-time winner from Seamus Coleman gave Everton all three points against Cardiff City on Saturday.

The Bluebirds looked to have won a much-needed point when Juan Cala knocked in a Peter Whittingham free-kick to equalise after Gerard Deulofeu's deflected shot had opened the scoring.  But Coleman had the last laugh with a miscued effort that found the back of the net.

The result means Everton remain firmly in the race for a European place, with Roberto Martinez's men just two points behind Tottenham and with a game in hand.

Cardiff, on the other hand, remain embroiled in a relegation scrap that shows no sign of getting any easier.
