Pardew Hoping For Clean Bill Of Health

Alan Pardew is keeping his fingers crossed that United's stars return from international duty fully fit

By Anthony Marshall - Newcastle United Managing Editor


Alan Pardew is keeping his fingers crossed that United's stars return from international duty with a clean bill of health, as he looks to build on their recent winning run.

Following back-to-back victories over Chelsea and Tottenham, the Magpies now have to wait until Saturday, 23rd November, for their next action, when Norwich City come to Tyneside in the Barclays Premier League, followed by West Bromwich Albion.

That break is due to another round of international fixtures, which sees the likes of Yohan Cabaye, Tim Krul, Loic Remy and Papiss Cisse among others representing their respective countries.

Some of their fixtures are play-offs for next summer's World Cup, while others are friendlies, but regardless of the importance, Pardew hopes they can all get some sort of game time.

"All your players disappear and you hope they all have great international games and come back fit," he explained.

"We have two great games in front of us - two home games - and St. James' Park will be buzzing.

"Hopefully we can add to what we've already achieved with two more wins."
