Big Sam was as chuffed as a bunny with a carrot when looking at Anelka’s contribution.

‘We’re reaping the rewards of a goalscorer at long last. We have not seen that type of goal from him yet. We have seen a lot of quality runs and skill and finishing.

‘Today we saw a goalscorer’s goal when he popped up at the far post and tapped it in. It was a great victory having gone 1-0 down.’

Glen Roeder preferred to talk about the own goal.

‘It is stating the obvious, but the two goals we conceded were, by our standards of late, shockers. They were two woeful goals.
‘Kevin Nolan pushed Peter Ramage in the back for the first one, but you cannot expect referees to see everything.

‘To concede that goal after the first half-hour playing so well, was a huge disappointment.’
