olton Wanderers boss Gary Megson felt that his side did what was required in their 1-0 win over Newcastle.
Ricardo Gardner won the game for the home side with his 47th minute strike, but neither side hit top gear in an open and lively affair.
"I was quite pleased with our performance in the first half although we did not show enough penetration. But we looked quite solid," reflected Megson.
"They did not cause us too many problems from set-pieces. We obviously got off to a great start in the second half and scored.
"But after that we didn't pass the ball well enough and did not keep it enough.
"However, we made the point before the game that the result was all-important and it was the right one."
New dealIt was revealed prior to the game that Megson had signed a new rolling contract with the club, but the Trotters boss was keen to stress that it was a matter of FA protocol as much as anything else.
"It is not such a big thing. It was just a pre-requisite from the league. So I had to do what I was supposed to do," he admitted.
"I had been working up until 10 days ago without signing anything although obviously I have been getting paid.
"There is no difference to the way I have been working and gone about things. All I have done now is sign a bit of paper."
