David Moyes regrets missed opportunities in Cup defeat
Moyes took the blame for his side's Carling Cup exit
Everton manager David Moyes rued his side's missed chances as League One Brentford beat them in the Carling Cup.
"We abused the opportunities we had to score and knew that they would keep coming and in football you have to take those chances when they come," he said.
"But they deserved it because they hung in and never let us out of the game."
Moyes was also angry over a post-match incident where he accused a supporter of throwing a bottle at Everton fans. "I thought it was terrible," he said.
"I said to him 'I saw your face. I saw who you were'.
"He got a bottle and went right up and threw it right into the middle of our group of supporters."
He added: "If the police want me to follow it up and try to find the individual that threw the bottle into the crowd then that would be fine by me, it wouldn't be a problem.
"I didn't grab him. I wanted to but obviously that would have brought more attention to the situation."
Everton are second from bottom in the Premier League and are still seeking their first league win of the season.
The Merseysiders were beaten 4-3 on penalties at Griffin Park after Seamus Coleman had given them the lead only for Gary Alexander to equalise for Brentford and take the game to extra time and penalties.
In the shoot-out, Jermaine Beckford's spot-kick was saved by Richard Lee and Phil Jagielka hit the post with his effort for Everton, leaving the Bees celebrating a famous victory.
"I think the police decided to take the penalty kicks at the end for security reasons," added Moyes. "That proved to be a right bloomer, didn't it?"
The Merseysiders had squandered a number of chances to go ahead but lacked a ruthless edge in front of goal.
It is that lack of potency - Everton have yet to score away from home this season - which has contributed to the club's dismal start to the season.
