Newcastle midfielder Danny Guthrie will be happy to continue to win ugly if that helps secure a European spot.

The Magpies ended a four-game winless run in the Barclays Premier League by beating Norwich 1-0 at St James' Park on Sunday with a far from classic display. Alan Pardew's patched-up side created more than enough chances to have won the contest by half-time, but in the end just hung on to the lead Papiss Cisse's early strike had handed them.

However, after seeing both relegation-threatened Wolves and Sunderland draw on Tyneside between away defeats at Tottenham and Arsenal, Guthrie was relieved simply to have returned to winning ways. He said: "It doesn't matter how we played. We played well at Arsenal and didn't win; today we didn't play as well, but won."
