Pardew: Newcastle bringing pride back to region

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew admits there's pride returning in the Northeast over their football club.

Toon can go second with victory over Everton today.

"When I've been in and around fans and in the city, most of the people are just really pleased with the way things are going," said Pardew this week. "There's a pride and maybe this team have gone a long way towards putting a spring back in everyone's step in the city.

"It's a huge motivation to potentially go second. In my mind, there are a couple of goals for this game. The first is to possibly go second, even if it is just for a few hours in the afternoon. And the second is for us to get to the next game unbeaten because I think that would be a real coup for us as a club."
