The England youth international received a huge roar from the Geordie crowd when he sprinted onto the field against the Potters.
It was also a moment the boyhood Newcastle United fan will cherish.
Pardew did not want to get carried away, but when asked if he needed to be protected, he said: “I don’t care, it is up to him how good he is.
“There is nothing to get carried away about. He hasn’t smashed one in the top corner – but hopefully, he will.”
