Newcastle United Boss Alan Pardew admits he'll have to do his homework on the Magpies Europa League opponents from the Ukraine.
Newcastle were paired with Metallist Kharkiv in today's knock-out draw. The Magpies will be at home in the first leg, on February the 14th 2013, before travelling to the Ukraine a week later.
Pardew said today, "It's a long journey, I know that, and they won their group, so it's a tough agenda for us. It was a tough draw in terms of the travel. The opposition I know very little about, I can't even comment on that until such time as we do such studying."
