Pardew hopes strike pair shine

BY foxsports • October 7, 2011

The Magpies entertain Spurs following the international break at St James' Park and Newcastle are a team in form following back-to-back league successes. Newcastle's frontline was potent in their 2-1 win at Wolves last time out and Pardew thinks that with more good service against Spurs that they can continue to wreak havoc. Pardew does not see Harry Redknapp's team as one who place an emphasis on closing down and he is hoping Newcastle can exploit that aspect in front of a packed St James' Park. "You have to say with the service they had, Demba and Bestie were very, very good again (against Wolves)," Pardew told the Shields Gazette. "At home, and on a bigger pitch against a team that don't close down like Wolves - and Tottenham don't - we'll hopefully cause some problems. "Hopefully, we'll put in a good performance for our fans, with St James's Park full and buzzing."
