And the new caretaker manager told the pair of them they start with a clean sheet and have to show what they can do.

Roeder: "It couldn't have been more perfect, in my opinion. The defence has had a little bit of stick lately. I said to them they need to get some pride back, they needed a good performance - they put in a good performance and they kept a clean sheet.

"Winning 2-0 was the perfect result, but then throw into the mix Alan Shearer breaking the record, then you have got the lot, haven't you?.

"They way he scored the goal, there have been so many Alan Shearer goals like that. I don't know why, but it never, ever crossed my mind in that split-second that he would miss, and that probably says something about him as well."
