Cisse relieved by goal

Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse is happy to continue his last-gasp heroics even if it leaves his team-mates no room for relaxation.

I am very, very happy to score because it's a long time. I am a striker and I know sometimes strikers have these moments and it's very, very hard.

Now it's nine years have played in the big championships and I have a little bit of experience.

In my head, I say all the time, 'go to training and work hard, and if you start the game or if you come on for 10 minutes or five minutes, you do your job and keep going all the time'.

Maybe you have one day and this day, you start to score.

Pardew planning for next season

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has revealed planning for a summer overhaul of his squad has already started.

It's important because I have to start planning for next year.

Is Sammy Ameobi going to be good enough? Is Armstrong going to feature next year, or do I loan him out for a bit more experience?

I have got Remie Streete, who is doing particularly well in the development group - is he going to get a game? Does he need to go out on loan? Massadio [Haidara] has not had much action.

They all need to be answered, those questions, in the next few weeks.

– Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew
