Coleman spot in the balance

EVERTON boss David Moyes has a "dilemma" to face in deciding whether to keep Seamus Coleman at right-back or replace him with the returning Tony Hibbert for the Merseyside derby.

Hibbert played 90 minutes for the Under-21s and now the Donegal man, who has impressed during his run in the team, is facing some serious competition.

"Seamus has done well in the team in the last few weeks that he has been there. It's a dilemma, but it's a nice dilemma that the manager would always want," Everton coach Alan Stubbs said.

"He would rather have more options as opposed to just one."

Stubbs admits Tony Hibbert will be 'desperate' to play in Sunday's derby against Liverpool.

The defender has been sidelined with a calf injury since last month's 2-2 draw with Newcastle.
