Pardew was asked whether he was annoyed by Cisse's refusal to shake his hand as he walked off the pitch.
The Toon boss said: "We did shake hands. It just followed a little bit longer than usual.
"Papiss wants to score. He has been working for the team on the right-hand side and he has had chances from there.
"I just felt we had lost our way and had run out of ideas. He was unlucky that I chose him to go off over Demba."
