Newcastle boss Eddie Howe was delighted with their 1-0 win at Leeds.

The Magpies are now within touching distance of Norwich City just above them at the foot of the Premier League.

But Howe says that his team can take plenty of confidence from the narrow victory.

Howe said: "It was a massive win for us.

"I thought we played very well today.

"The first half was a bit cagey but the second half we played really well, we defended well.

"We became a real counter threat the longer the game went on."

Howe felt his goalkeeper was magnificent during the win as Newcastle kept a much needed shutout but he stated it was a team effort.

He said: "Martin Dubravka played really well today.

"He made the save, commanded his box, took crosses.

"I thought our second half performance was really, really good.

"Chris Wood also gave us a platform as well from the central position.

"His workrate was tireless. All our subs performed really well today.

"The intensity of that match, whenever you play Leeds you know it will be end to end.

"Physically we suffered a bit.

"Yeah hanging on at the end is something we haven't done very well this season so that is a big psychological barrier we are hopefully on our way to overcome. I didn't feel we would concede today.

"We hope to use it as a turning point in our season, we need to, we need more wins so fingers crossed."
