Newcastle boss Pardew hails Marveaux class in Wigan win

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew hailed Sylvain Marveaux's influence in victory over Wigan Athletic.

The Latics were shattered 10 minutes from time when Marveaux, three minutes after replacing Gabriel Obertan, nodded down for Yohan Cabaye to smash the winner.

"I've been saying how Sylvain is a good player and he hasn't had the chance," said Pardew. "Today he got a small opportunity and he showed he's a class act."
