Alan Pardew: “It was an unexpected two points.
“If I am honest, I was gutted last week that we did not get the three at Sunderland because I felt we deserved it.
“We did not deserve the three points in this game, but we took them.
“Sometimes a bit of honesty, and a bit of hard work, gives you the chance to be in the game.
“We were still in the game.
“The fans knew we were struggling and they tried to keep us going.
“Any kind of flash or moment from us, they were greeting like it was a European night.”
