The Toffees arrive in N17 in fine form with a 4-0 hammering of Leeds United at Goodison Park last time out.
But we've been buoyed by two clean sheets after conceding 11 goals in three games and Steve, captain in Jamie Redknapp's absence, insists the lads are working hard to work our way up the table.
He said: "It's about the lads sticking together and working hard to put things right.
"We've got Everton at home and if we can go into the international break with a win it will look so much different.
"It's up to us to get on with it, get some pride back and lift ourselves up the table. We're in a shocking position and we know that. We have to put it right.
"I think David Moyes did really well at Everton last season and now they've got Duncan Ferguson back up front as well.
"It will be tough. They got a great result against Leeds as well. They will work hard and try to earn the right to play, we have to match that and try and get that result."
Stephen Carr says we'll have to match Everton's work ethic as we aim for Premiership points at the Lane on Saturday.
