Paul Lambert: "To an extent, but then I think Guzan only had a couple of saves to make and that's not too bad.

"We have (strikers) Christian Benteke and Libor Kozak to come back from injury and once they come back we are going to be really strong in that department.

"I couldn't fault the lads for the way we played. We were resolute and it is another clean sheet. There were some really big performances there.

"It is a great start for us. After everyone was all doom and gloom about the club towards the end of last season, we certainly took that challenge on and I thought today we were excellent in the first half - all we needed was a finishing touch on that.

"Newcastle came down here last year and did a job on us (winning 2-1).

"I don't think anybody could begrudge us getting something from this game."
