Roeder Penalty Claim

Roeder Penalty Claim

Newcastle had a penalty claim in the first half when Chris Riggott tripped Ameobi.

Glenn Roeder adding: 'It was a nailed-on penalty but referees do not know whether to stick or twist because there is so much diving.

'One game at a time but we are now revved up and looking forward to Wigan next week. We will let the league table look after itself but we have kept our season alive.

'You only get three points out of it but it's a tiny bit more special because it's a local derby and there's a controlled rivalry.

'My happiness comes from sending those fans home happy.

'I was very strong with the players when I spoke to them before the game, that we had to come out of the blocks fast. We didn't want a slow start.

'You saw the euphoria and you weren't sure whether they would have another high or a flat performance. In the last 15 minutes we stood up to be counted, which we haven't done at times this season and have been criticised for that.

'But we cannot be criticised tonight, what they did to Basle they couldn't do to us.'
