Newcastle boss Pardew turns on Reading striker Pogrebnyak

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew has accused Reading striker Pavel Pogrebnyak of being a diver.

Pardew's claim comes days after Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers slammed Luis Suarez after his hitman admitted he dived against Stoke.

Pards, whose side face Brian McDermott's Royals today, said: "People are being criticised for diving and not playing fair. So, come on, stay on your feet!

"Reading are great at set-plays as their striker Pogrebnyak falls over.

"He's one of the worst I've seen for falling over and buying free-kicks.

"We have got to be clever, defend set-plays and win the game."
