Newcastle defender Jose Enrique will take Barclays Premier League survival however it comes.
The Magpies eased themselves back into the top half of the table as a result of yesterday's hard-fought 1-1 draw with champions Chelsea, who slipped from the top of the pile at the end of a round of fixtures for the first time this season.
Chris Hughton's men had to scrap their way to the final whistle as the visitors came from behind to snatch a point and threaten to take all three, but full-back Enrique insists that as long as Newcastle edge themselves over the finishing line, he does not care whether they do so playing flowing football or grinding out results.
The 24-year-old Spaniard said: "We are in a good position, but the most important thing is to stay in this division.
"If we can get into a better position, that's good, but the most important thing is to stay in the division - and if we continue in the same way, we can do it.
"When we play against the big teams, we have to drop back a little bit. I know it is uglier football, but if we get the results when we play like that, we will have to play like that in every game."
