Simon Davies feels the victory over Newcastle puts us in with a 'real shout' of securing a good Premiership finish with the season entering its final stages.
The midfielder returned to the side after a two-game absence with calf problems and probably produced his best performance for some time, showing great energy and an accurate and imaginative range of passing.
"My calves were a bit sore after the internationals and I had a few days rest," reflected the Welshman. "I felt really good out there and it was a great win for us.
"It just came along for me, I was with the pace of the game here and it is the first time I have felt that for a while. I got a lot of the ball and really enjoyed it.
"Alan Shearer going off helped us out a little bit but I think we were a bit complacent in the second half. We should have gone on and killed the game off, but you could see we didn't want to give anything away.
"Everyone was really pleased in the dressing room."
There are now just six fixtures left in the campaign, tricky trips to Liverpool, Arsenal and Middlesbrough, with with West Brom, Aston Villa and Blackburn to come at the Lane.
"It puts us in with a real shout of doing something, we believe we can put in good run together in the games we've got left," added Simon. "If we can win our home games and get something at least from Liverpool, Arsenal or Middlesbrough we will be right in there with a good chance."
