Newcastle boss Pardew: Cisse late winners getting ridiculous

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew admits Papiss Cisse's habit of hitting late winners is getting "ridiculous".

Pardew will take another winner from the Senegal international whenever it arrives, but admits he has been urging his leading scorer not to leave it so late.

He said with a smile: "I keep telling Papiss to try to score before the 92nd minute - it's becoming ridiculous.

"He's a special goalscorer and a big threat to Benfica, I thought, in the first leg, and he will be tomorrow too."
