Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew admits he's "worried" about their situation.

Last season the Magpies were the Premier League's surprise package, upsetting the odds to secure fifth in the standings.

However, this season has proved a lot more difficult talk and United sit 14th after the 2-1 defeat at Fulham.

"I'm worried in so much as we are not picking up enough points, that is pretty evident," Pardew said.

"Although the performances against Stoke, Wigan and against Fulham have improved, it is a worry we don't have enough points on the board."
