United’s win against West Brom was Newcastle’s fifth successive Premiership victory and took them level with sixth-placed Blackburn in the race for European qualification.

Glenn Roeder: ‘The win keeps us in there, the win keeps us in with a chance. I said to the players yesterday when we discussed West Brom, they would come here today with what I would describe as a ‘do-or-die’ approach.

‘But then I also said ‘but don’t forget, it’s do or die for us. If we don’t win, we will probably go out of the European race’. It was do or die for both teams – thankfully, we did the doing.’
