BLACKBURN ROVERS 2
- N'Zonzi 69,
- Roberts 81
- Arteta (pen) 4,
- Yakubu 79,
- Cahill 90
**Tim Cahill's 90th minute strike gave Everton a 3-2 win after Blackburn twice came from behind in a pulsating match at Ewood Park
Mikel Arteta's penalty put the Toffees ahead but the Spaniard could have been sent off shortly after for poking Morten Gamst Pedersen in the eye.
Rovers levelled when Steven Nzonzi smashed in from 30 yards but Everton regained the lead when substitute Yakubu nodded in with his first touch.
Jason Roberts restored parity with a 25-yard drive before Cahill tapped in Yakubu's low cross to snatch victory.
The result leaves Everton only one point behind seventh-place Aston Villa and two adrift of Liverpool, who are in sixth place in the table - the last slot that brings Europa League qualification.
