Pardew ready for testing week ahead

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew has highlighted the importance of the club's next three games.

The Magpies face a crucial week ahead, starting with Fulham at home tomorrow in the Premier League. They then host Benfica in their Europa League Quarter-Final second leg on Thursday, before locking horns with North East rivals Sunderland in the Tyne-Wear derby next weekend.

Speaking ahead of tomorrow's match, Pardew said: "We've got some terrific home form just now, and we need to take that into these three games."
