Williamson: Pardew happy with Newcastle players

Newcastle United defender Mike Williamson revealed Alan Pardew was upbeat in defeat to FA Cup opponents Brighton.

Despite the dismal performance, Pardew praised his players behind closed doors.

"A few of the lads came in and staked a claim and the gaffer said he will note that down for next week," admitted Williamson. "There are a few boys who did themselves justice.’"
