AngularJS Question

Restrict input as numbers on input fields using AngularJS

I am trying to restrict input as numbers on below fields

Postal Code:
<input type="text" id="zipCode1" name="zipCode1" size="4" maxlength="5" ng-model="zipCode1" ng-change="myNumbers(zipCode1)" />
<input type="text" id="zipCode2" name="zipCode2" size="3" maxlength="4" ng-model="zipCode2" ng-change="myNumbers(zipCode2)" />

it doesn't work with

$scope.myNumbers = function(fieldName){
var tN = fieldName.replace(/[^\d]/g, "");
if(tN != fieldName)
fieldName = tN

It works with below code but changing both the fields

$scope.$watch('myNumbers', function() {
var tN = $scope.myNumbers.replace(/[^\d]/g, "");
if(tN != $scope.myNumbers)
$scope.myNumbers = tN;

Need to change the value for the input field where user is typing and not both

Use the directive found here: http://stackoverflow.com/a/19675023/149060 instead of the ng-change function. Replicated here for easy reference:

  directive('onlyDigits', function () {

    return {
        restrict: 'A',
        require: '?ngModel',
        link: function (scope, element, attrs, ngModel) {
            if (!ngModel) return;
            ngModel.$parsers.unshift(function (inputValue) {
                var digits = inputValue.split('').filter(function (s) { return (!isNaN(s) && s != ' '); }).join('');
                ngModel.$viewValue = digits;
                return digits;
