Everton’s Hibbert delighted with comeback

Hibbert told evertonTV: “I asked to play in the reserve game before I knew we were going away. I needed a game – the Liverpool (reserve) game got called off but I need as many games as I can now and hopefully I can play a couple more for the first team.

“The pitch was heavy for the reserves and I started tiring towards the end which is how I knew it would be, but at least I got the full 90 minutes and I am made up with it.

“I have got a game in now though and hopefully I can keep pushing on.”
