Cahill´s landmark goal helps Everton reach fourth round

2 January 2010 19:25

LIVERPOOL, England (AFP) - Australia midfielder Tim Cahill fired Everton into the FA Cup fourth round as his 50th goal for the club inspired a 3-1 win against Carlisle on Saturday.

David Moyes' side had struggled to see off their fiesty League One opponents at Goodison Park after Kevan Hurst cancelled out James Vaughan's early opener for the hosts.

It needed a typically predatory finish from Cahill, who reached his half century of goals in his 192nd appearance for the Toffees, eight minutes from full-time to shatter Carlisle's resistance before Leighton Baines put a flattering gloss on the score with a late penalty.

Carlisle were never overawed by their more illustrious opponents and, backed by 6,000 fans who had braved blizzards to get to Merseyside, they were unfortunate not to earn a money-spinning replay.

They got off to the worst possible start when Adam Clayton's careless 12th minute back-pass presented Vaughan with a chance to round goalkeeper Adam Collin and fire into an empty net.

But despite that setback Carlisle were level within six minutes as Clayton made amends for his mistake.

He drove in a long-range shot that Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard could only push out to Hurst, who turned in the loose ball from a yard out.

Vaughan thought he had restored Everton's lead when he turned in Cahill's shot but his strike was ruled out for offside.

Young striker Vaughan, only just back from a long-term injury, went close again with a diving header from Baines' cross.

Carlisle were more than holding their own as Everton struggled to impose themselves and the visitors were agonisingly close to taking the lead when captain Danny Livesey rattled the bar from 12 yards.

Just as Everton seemed to have run out of ideas, they finally took control in the 82nd minute.

Defender Seamus Coleman, on as a substitute, beat two players on the right and fired over a cross that Diniyar Bilyaletdinov headed down in the box.

Cahill saw one shot blocked by Ian Harte, but regained possession to fire past Collin.

An injury-time penalty from Baines, after Collin had brought down substitute Keiran Agard, secured Everton's place in the fourth round.
