Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew insists there's too much to play for to be thinking about next season.

Pardew is managing expectations at the moment on Tyneside, and not looking too far ahead.

He told the Evening Chronicle: "Let's just say if we got to the semi-finals of the Europa League and finished 10th with the injuries we've had, that would be a job well done in my opinion.

"Then we can look forward to next year."
