FOOTBALL: JESPER MAY SPRAY THE PENALTY.

Byline: ALAN NIX0N

EVERTON star Jesper Blomqvist has put his Goodison career in doubt after angrily showering the bench with a drink bottle.

Blomqvist was fuming with boss David Moyes for substituting him in the thrilling win over Bolton and he took his anger out on the plastic container as he went to his seat on the bench.

The drink sprayed over some of Moyes's staff and other players and the new Everton chief reacted angrily by going to Blomqvist's seat in the back of the dug-out to give him a lecture.

Moyes pointed in Blomqvist's face and the former Manchester United winger looked sheepish as his boss read him the riot act.

It may have been a badly-timed show of petulance for Blomqvist, who is only on contract at Everton until the end of the season and is one of several players under review.

The new Goodison boss takes a hard line with shows of dissent and Blomqvist may ultimately have tipped the scales against getting a new deal with the club.

Blomqvist's replacement, striker Nick Chadwick, went on to score his first goal for Everton and seal a 3-1 win that lifts them out of trouble.
