Barcelona wing-back Adriano says they shouldn't dwell on their scratchy 1-0 win over Sporting Gijon.

Adriano, whose goal was his first in La Liga for Barca, feels the points were invaluable.

"The important thing was the victory. At home this team (Sporting) always make it difficult for us, we knew that we would have to fight until the end," the Brazilian said on his club's website.

"We suffered a bit, but it's been worth the effort. We came away with three golden points."
