Returning midfielder Jonas Gutierrez was pleased Newcastle were resilient enough to hold out for a draw at Norwich City after shipping 11 goals in their previous two Premier League away games.

'It was a good point,' said the Argentinian. 'A lot of teams come to play here and get beat. Maybe in the first half we played better than the second but it was really important we didn't concede a goal and that we could get a point for the confidence of the players and to look forward to the next game.

'Nothing else matters as long as we stick together and try to do the best for our team-mates. That's most important.'

The result was all the more impressive for Gutierrez's given he played under Norwich boss Chris Hughton during his time in charge at St James' Park.

'He's a very good manager – and Colin (Calderwood) as well, ' he said.
