Newcastle preserved their 100% UEFA Cup record and qualify for the next round with a superb victory over Celta Vigo.

Steven Taylor’s 86th-minute header won the match and leaves Roeder’s men sitting six points clear at the top of Group H and the result against Eintracht Frankfurt in Germany next week is no longer important.

Roeder: ‘It is very satisfying, especially beating a team of the calibre of Celta Vigo tonight.

‘They have had some very good results recently, especially away from home. They have won at Real Madrid and Deportivo La Coruna recently.

‘To fall behind to a team that is that good away from home and come back to win, it is a special victory for us.

‘To have won all three games in the group is also very important to us.

‘I understand that Fenerbahce, the team I was told was apparently the weakest in the group, beat Palermo 3-0 tonight, so perhaps they are not so weak.’
