The brave and bold display against in the 2-2 draw with Newcastle pleased Kevin Kilbane who explained that the team did everything they set out to do at St. James Park. "We said before the game that we wanted to try and keep the crowd quiet for the first 15-20 minutes," he said. "We did that by scoring and looked strong throughout the first-half. After we scored the goal we seemed to settle. It made us pass the ball well and we started to create chances here and there. We gave very little away in that first-half and didn't really allow them into it. They've scored two really good goals and (Obafemi) Martins looked to have won the game for them but credit to us for getting back into it. Titus stepped up and he's got us a deserved draw. We've come up here without four or five regulars and managed to grind out a good result."
