thumbnail Hello,

The former Wigan full back has heaped praise upon his Irish team mate, suggesting that the former Sligo Rovers man has all the acoutrements required of a modern day full back

Everton left back Leighton Baines has praised the ability of his team mate Seamus Coleman after the Republic of Ireland international reverted from right midfield to the right back position for the Toffees.

Coleman has played at right back for the Goodison Park side during their last three games and his performances in the position have drawn admiration from Baines. Speaking to evertonfc.com, the England international said that the former Sligo Rovers defender is 'a really good full-back'.

"It's part of the game now, isn't it? Full-backs are expected to attack a bit more and are expected to provide assists or even goals," said Baines. "That's what Seamus is all about as well. He's a really good full-back."

He added: "He's been doing a job in the midfield role, which he's very good at as well, but I think naturally he probably feels his home is at full back and we've seen that in the last few games. He's done really well."

Coleman, 23, joined Everton from League of Ireland side Sligo Rovers in January 2009 and has since played over 70 first team games for the Toffees.
