Gareth Barry: 'Draw was fair result'

Everton midfielder Gareth Barry believes that a draw was the fairest result in this evening's Premier League match against West Bromwich Albion.

Everton midfielder Gareth Barry has expressed his belief that a draw was the fairest result in this evening's Premier League match against West Bromwich Albion.

The Toffees took the lead through Kevin Mirallas late in the first half but a Diego Lugano header rescued a point for the Baggies in Pepe Mel's first match in charge of the club.

The result means that Everton missed the chance to move above Merseyside rivals Liverpool into the top four, and Barry admits that his side had drawn too many games already this season.

"We knew it was going to be tough. They were going to go right to the end. At the end of the game I had a great chance from eight yards out - it's a shame [the West Brom defence] all pushed up," Barry told Sky Sports News.

"It was a fair result in the end. It's nine draws for us now and that's too many. But if we show the form that we showed at start of season then we'll be there or thereabouts."

Everton will have another chance to move above Liverpool when the two sides face each other in a Merseyside derby at Anfield next Tuesday.
