We only have one more point than we had at the 16-game stage when United were relegated in 2009.
And with the Magpies facing tough home games against Manchester City and Queens Park Rangers in the next week or so, Pardew want some more points in the bag.
Alan Pardew: “We have to keep an eye on where we are. It is difficult to get points at the minute.
“We’re a side that on its day can beat anybody.
“We look more like a team.
“In the last three games the level has improved.
“But unfortunately we need to get results.”
