Tim Howard has etched his name into Everton folklore and hopes to go on breaking records in the future.

During the Toffees' 3-1 success at West Ham on Saturday, the American became the first keeper in the club's illustrious history to concede less then a goal a game throughout his first 100 appearances.

Jack Collison's second-half strike at Upton Park was only the 99th to sneak past Howard as he racked up a century of showings for David Moyes' men.

His consistent performances have seem him eclipse legendary shot-stopper Neville Southall at Goodison Park, although he has some way to go if he is to challenge the Welshman's appearance record of 750 outings.

Ability

"Neville is a legend and the reason he's a legend is because he did it over a long period of time," Howard told the club's official website.

"I've got a long way to go, I know that. But I hope that I can stay consistent, stay here for a long time and do it with this club.

"100 games is a fantastic milestone at any club but, as I've always said, at Everton there's something special about it.

"The ability to play consistently over the last few years and get to 100 games is a marker for me. The record part? That's icing on the cake.

"It just shows what I've always believed; if you can work hard and be consistent over a long period of time things like that will come."
