The victory eased Swansea six points clear of the drop zone with three games to play, and that, rather than taking his personal tally for the season to 22 goals, was the most pleasing aspect of the trip to Tyneside for Bony.
Asked if it was his most important contribution to date, he told the Swans official website: "You can say that because it gave us three points that were crucial.
"I was just focusing on two things: one was to score, and the other was looking back at the time on the clock to see how long we had left to play.
"There were no nerves. I practised in training a few days ago and it's always the same - the only thing that changes is what side to go.
"It's always good when you score in the last minute, but when the team wins, its fantastic."
