6:34 pm
always, we never, never controlled the game totally. my bigger disappointment was to see 3,500 fans oi'i disappointment was to see 3,500 fans on sunday, playing away here, supporting the team, and we could not get three points. but i think they will be happy with one point and hopefully they can enjoy the travel back. there was also a long trip for everton supporters, who probably set off pretty early for their side's lunchtime clash at brighton. the hosts were heading for victory, but wayne rooney scored a 90th minute equaliser from the penalty spot. the seagulls had taken a deserved lead inside the last ten minutes through anthony knockaert. both teams are three points above the relegation zone, and it's a result that will do little to ease the pressure on everton boss ronald koeman, with just two league wins in eight, despite their heavy spending in the transfer window over the summer. we lost a little bit of control after one of two mistakes in our ball position, maybe that's the problem of confidence, but it's one

way to come out of this difficult situation, is working hard. to show the belief and the commitment between the players, and that was what we showed today. between the players, and that was what we showed todaylj between the players, and that was what we showed today. i thought we would probably decide more likely to score. that, we did, and ijust felt in general play, even with the quality that they've got, that they probably would not carve us open. that was the case, so a bit more disappointed that we have not come away with three points. derby county have jumped above nottingham forest in the championship after a 2—0 win in the east midlands derby this afternoon the contest was only 2a seconds old when vidra opened the scoring for derby, firing home from 25 yards. he then teed up the veteran striker david nugent. it's county's first win in five games, and they are up to 13th in the table. roger federer has continued his hold over rafa nadal. he'd won their three previous matches in 2017 and it's now four, after victory
