Newcastle put in a resolute defensive display against Arsenal on Saturday.
It was certainly a point won rather than two dropped, and it takes the Toon out of the bottom three.
Glenn Roeder: 'I am very proud of them. They had a lot of possession, which was to be expected - after they took Liverpool apart last week, you could hardly expect us to come here and have the lion's share of the play.
'The boys defended very well, put themselves in the way of the ball and we scored a classic breakaway goal.
'Fingers crossed now for Kieron that this is the start of a long successful run without injury in the team.
'We have shown today we are more than capable of pulling away from the bottom three over the coming months.'
Given had been out for several weeks with an abdominal injury, but showed few ill effects today.
'Shay made the sort of saves we have all seen down the years. He was an inspiration for all the guys in front of him.
'I never get carried away and never get so down that I cannot do my job - and that is the best character to have.'
