Pardew buoyed by Coloccini presence

Published Add your comment

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew is hoping skipper Fabricio Coloccini can help spark a revival.

The 30-year-old Argentina international returned to action at Stoke on Wednesday evening after a three-match domestic ban and although he could not lead his side to a positive result at the Britannia Stadium as the Potters produced a late fightback, there were signs of significant improvement.

Pardew said: "He missed three games and we lost all three, so that gives you some indication."
