Carlo Cudicini was delighted his two fine second half saves counted for something at Newcastle.
The goalkeeper was back in the starting line-up in place of Heurelho Gomes, who was injured in training on Friday.
Carlo was at his best to deny Peter Kovenkrands one-on-one and then tip Shola Ameobi's stinger wide with us trailing 1-0 at St James Park.
We committed more and more players forward in search of the equaliser and finally broke through in added time when Aaron Lennon drove low into the corner for 1-1 and a deserved point.
It would have been a different story but for Carlo’s key saves at 1-0.
“You always hope when you make a save that it will count,” said Carlo. “You think 'I hope that will mean something at the end'.
“But it's also good for the team to come back from 1-0 down, away from home.
“We had to risk something, but we didn't concede too much. They had chances, we had chances and then we scored right at the end, so 1-1 is a good result for us.
“I think overall we definitely deserved a point.
"We did okay in the first half and had a chance right at the end and going 1-0 up would have been much easier. But in the end, it’s a good point.
“We had good possession and had our chances, but in the end 1-1 is probably a fair result.”
