Everton boss Roberto Martinez 'very satisfied' by FA Cup progression

Everton manager Roberto Martinez says that it feels "very satisfying" to beat Dagenham & Redbridge to a place in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Everton manager Roberto Martinez has admitted that it feels "very satisfying" to reach the fourth round of the FA Cup.

The Merseyside outfit picked off League Two side Dagenham & Redbridge in a 2-0 win thanks to a goal from Arouna Kone and penalty from Kevin Mirallas at Goodison Park this afternoon.

"It was very satisfying," Martinez told reporters. "There's no such thing as easy tie and you know these games are testing, you have to concentrate. Dagenham showed that, they kept their shape well and it's easy to get exposed.

"I was pleased with the attacking threat but you have to give them credit for the way they defended. I was impressed with the physical levels of Dagenham.

"It was good to see Phil Jagielka get 90 minutes, and Bryan Oviedo get 90 minutes, and Steven Pienaar was able to feel like a footballer again."

Everton's next game is a Premier League clash against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday.
