Everton's Cahill out for season

Everton's Tim Cahill
Cahill has scored 10 goal for Everton this season

Everton midfielder Tim Cahill has been ruled out of the rest of the season with a broken metatarsal.

The 28-year-old Australian lasted just 10 minutes against West Ham last Saturday after suffering a recurrence of an old foot injury.

Cahill has aggravated an injury he originally sustained against Sheffield United last season.

"It is disappointing but it happens - I think we can cope," said Everton manager David Moyes.

The news is a major blow to Everton's hopes of beating local rivals Liverpool to the final Champions League place.


Cahill was forced out the final three matches of the 2006-2007 season because of the original injury.
