Newcastle goalkeeper Shay Given admitted he felt like somersaulting across the pitch after keeping his first clean sheet away from home in 15 months.
The 31-year-old Irishman stood at the other end at Fulham on Saturday as midfielder Joey Barton converted a last-minute penalty to hand the Magpies a second successive Barclays Premier League victory.
Given had to go back even further to his last unbeaten game, which came in a 2-0 victory at West Ham on September 17 2006, the day he was carried off in agony after suffering a perforated bowel in a collision with striker Marlon Harewood.
He said: "I didn't realise it had been that long.
"It has been frustrating, and it feels like that long since we have kept a clean sheet home or away.
"I was celebrating the clean sheet as much as the victory. I was going to 'do an Obafemi Martins' across the box, but I don't think I could have managed it.
"It was a good feeling to keep a clean sheet. It's not just me or the defenders, the whole team should get credit for it.
"We defend as a team and if we don't do that, we won't keep clean sheets."
