Hibbert outshines Naismith treble

Naismith, a summer signing from Rangers, benefited from Steven Pienaar’s creativity to put the Toffees in command, first running on to the South African’s lofted through-ball to chip over goalkeeper Dimitris Konstantopoulos and then, after Taxiarchis Fountas equalised, heading in a Pienaar cross to make it 2-1.
The third came from a Pienaar corner after Hibbert’s 25-yard effort was tipped over, but the biggest cheer – and a pitch invasion – was reserved for the 53rd minute, when Everton were awarded a free-kick and Leighton Baines teed up Hibbert to drill a low shot under the wall and into the bottom corner.
