Does it matter if I have an odd tyre?

A recently purchased Fiesta has continental tyres except the near side front which is a goodyear with a similar tread pattern. Is this acceptable?

If the odd tyre has a similar pattern, is the same size and the same type - all summer or all-weather - as the other three tyres then this should present no issues.
