Pardew keeps sights on top six

Published Add your comment

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has challenged his players to keep themselves in the hunt for a top-six finish after making a major move in the transfer market.

This week's capture of Senegal international striker Papiss Demba Cisse, a deal which is understood to have cost the Magpies close to £10million, represented a statement of intent by owner Mike Ashley with the club sitting in sixth place in the Barclays Premier League table.

The manager insists Newcastle will give it everything they have got to upset the established order, and said: "The more it goes and the closer it gets to the end, I have said all along, that last six games, if we can find ourselves in with a shout, there might be less pressure on us, so we could make an impact."
