Everton must get games won, says Baines
The Toffees' challenge for Champions League qualification is faltering after some underwhelming recent results and the left-back has called for his side to win ugly

The Toffees currently trail fourth-placed Tottenham by six points, and have won just one of their last five Premier League fixtures.
Next up is a difficult trip to face Norwich, a game in which Baines insists his team-mates must do everything they can to bring home all three points.
“They are a good side, Norwich,” he told the Liverpool Echo. “They started the season well.
“We have found it tough against them and we had a tough game against them down there last season. They are strong at home.
“If we want to achieve something draws aren’t going to cut it. We have to find ways to get games won. Sometimes it may not be pretty, but it is about getting games won.
“We have got to keep clean sheets and get people scoring.”
The Toffees also have an FA Cup fifth round replay to contend with in midweek, after Oldham scored a last minute equaliser during last week's meeting at Boundary Park.
Baines admits the late goal was a blow, but is confident that David Moyes' men will get the job done in their own back yard.
“It was a bit of a shock because the goal came so late,” he continued. “We were disappointed because we want to go through but we have got the replay at Goodison Park and so we will fancy our chances.
“We must now pick ourselves up and go again. We can’t really ask for much more than a home tie with a side who play a couple of leagues below you.
“If we lose then we only have ourselves to blame. Our destiny is in our own hands. We have got to look forward now.
“We would’ve liked more from the last two games but we still believe we can achieve something. The games coming up are very winnable.”
