Alan Pardew: "It was a big moment, no doubt about that.
"As someone who has been in the game a while and knows the financial implications, what it means to spirit, the feeling for the fans, the implications of everything involved, it's a precious goal.
"You can't put a price on it, you really can't.
"I can't underline how important the win is, with the extra two points.
"They are very, very important."
