Everton had to settle for a point in a hard-fought game against Cardiff, as Roberto Martinez’s wait for a first league win as Toffees boss continued.
The visitors wanted a penalty when Gary Medel brought down Leighton Baines but referee Phil Dowd waved play on.
Kevin Mirallas missed two good chances and Cardiff keeper David Marshall kept out a deflected Nikica Jelavic header.
Victor Anichebe wasn’t listed for action. He might leave the Toffees in the current transfer window.
