"They keep amazing me really with hunger and desire and I'm bursting with pride at the moment," stated Holloway.
"I can't praise the keeper enough he's been outstanding. The save with his feet at the end [from Andy Carroll] was outstanding."
For Holloway's counterpart Chris Hughton there was only frustration as he reflected on a performance he believed similar in quality to the one that brought a 6-0 victory against Aston Villa in Newcastle's last home game.
"We certainly created enough good chances to win a couple of matches," Hughton lamented.
"There were a similar number of chances to the game against Villa, but we weren't able to put them away.
"I can't fault the commitment of my players, we just didn't have enough fortune or quality and came up against a very good keeper.
"It's a defeat we didn't deserve, but we were at home and we don't like losing points at home."
