Midfielder Tim Cahill says Everton have momentum

Cahill's winner against Wigan was his sixth goal of the season

Midfielder Tim Cahill believes Everton have gained momentum after extending their unbeaten league run to nine games with Saturday's 1-0 win at Wigan.

The run has helped Everton climb the table and put a poor start behind them.

"We rode the wave earlier in the season and now we're trying to find our form," Cahill told BBC Radio Merseyside.

"We've got it and it's all about the momentum and taking it forward. We're not looking too far ahead but this is what we're capable of."

The victory at the DW Stadium took David Moyes' side to ninth in the Premier League and it was their third successive clean sheet in the league.

The game also saw defender Philippe Senderos make his debut for Everton following his loan move from Arsenal and Cahill had words of praise for the Switzerland international.

"Philippe Senderos came in like he's been here his whole career and he's played really well," Cahill continued.

"The lads have been sticking together at the back and it just shows how well we play together and how hard we work.

"It's special because we went through hard times at the beginning of the season and this is what we deserve for all our hard work.

"We've got a lot of players coming back from injury and a lot of players are going to find it hard to get in the team. So the competition [to get in the team] is quite hard."
