Pardew Warns That Hull Looked Three Points Looked Guaranteed

Alan Pardew warns his players that they must remember what went wrong against Hull.

Alan Pardew: “Anyone in the bottom five can be under pressure but Chris Hughton had a great result last weekend.

"He did what he needed to do at half time, imposed his authority on the team and they responded.

“That’s what good managers do and he is a good manager. He did a great job here and I’ll be certain looking forward to seeing him even though we don’t want him to come away with any points so we’ll be making things difficult for him.

"We had a complacent second-half against Hull which cost us three points that we’ve had to work hard to win back. If we can beat Norwich it would be a really good total for us this season and it’s a great challenge because we’ve got another home game coming up.

“We’re in a really great position, but we want to be sat here saying the same thing on Monday or Tuesday.

“Yeah, our fans do expect a win but that’s any crowd and I think ours is one of the more supportive at a big club towards the players.

"Of course they will expect us to win against Norwich, but trust me, if we build up a head of steam at any time they play a massive part.

“There might only be a ten minute period in the game where we can win it, that could come between 40 and 60 or 80 and 94, but it will be significant and that’s why we are so strong at home.”
