Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew urged the Toon Army not to dwell on their thrashing at Manchester City.

Pardew – who spent Tuesday in the south of France for transfer talks with Mike Ashley and Joe Kinnear – is confident that his players will deliver against West Ham United.

He told the Evening Chronicle: “Really and truly it is about the next 37 games – particularly the two at home. We need points on the board.

“It will be a better measure for us after West Ham and Fulham. Judge us after that.”
