The former Rangers player scored Everton's equaliser in Sunday's 2-2 draw with Liverpool and Naismith has admitted that he hopes he can use it as a stepping stone to recapture the form he produced before he suffered a cruciate ligament injury last year.
Naismith said: "At least I'm off the mark now for Everton and I can build on it. This first period is about settling in and getting used to the training.
"I never came expecting to play every week. But I work hard every day to get back to where I was before and this was just another step towards that."
Naismith has featured 10 times for Everton since his move from Rangers in the summer.
