Newcastle boss Alan Pardew will welcome Chris Hughton back to Tyneside confident he has built upon his predecessor's good work.

The former Republic of Ireland international will return to St James' Park with his Norwich side on Sunday for the first time since he was shown the exit in December 2010. Hughton won promotion at the first attempt and in the process, forged a dressing room spirit which remains intact today, and which was a key factor in the fifth-place finish last season.

Pardew, initially an unpopular choice as Hughton's replacement, made the most of his opportunity and said this week: "Both of us could probably look each other in the eye and say we have done a decent job at Newcastle - so far on my part."
