Roeder warns Magpies

11 Aug 2006 - 10:20:04

Newcastle United boss Glenn Roeder has warned his players they still have plenty of work to do to progress in the UEFA Cup.

A second-half Titus Bramble header earned United a 1-0 victory in the first leg of their second qualifying round tie against Ventspils, but Roeder believes the Latvian league leaders are good enough to cause a shock in the return at St James' Park.

"We must make sure the players are not too relaxed or take things easy," he said.

"We have to make sure we are just as motivated at St James' Park as we were in this game."

Roeder also had some words of praise for much-maligned defender Bramble.

He said: "Titus has chipped in with a few goals over the last half-dozen games and none more important than the one against Chelsea that got us into the competition.

"He has now scored another vital goal that without doubt gives us a big advantage in the return leg, but we must make sure we are just as motivated for that game as we were here."
