Newcastle strike pair can cause Tottenham problems - Pardew

Newcastle United's Demba Ba and Leon Best are capable of causing plenty of problems for Tottenham according to manager Alan Pardew.

The Magpies next take on Spurs at St James' Park on October 16 and Pardew is confident the in-form strike partnership can continue their recent match-winning performances and maintain Newcastle's undefeated beginning.

"You have to say with the service they had, Demba and Bestie were very, very good again (against Wolves)," Pardew told the Shields Gazette.

"At home, and on a bigger pitch against a team that don't close down like Wolves - and Tottenham don't - we'll hopefully cause some problems.

"Hopefully, we'll put in a good performance for our fans, with St James' Park full and buzzing."
