Shola Ameobi: "When you get a chance so early on the good thing for me was I had 90 minutes to make one count and fortunately I had the opportunity to put one away.

"I won't get an easier chance, but I'm delighted to get the three points for the boys and the city after a tough Christmas.

"In the first half we dominated but were only 1-0 up and you never know in this league.

"We didn't get a second but we defended well and we needed to start keeping clean sheets."
