Alan Pardew says Newcastle's run of form no fluke

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew puts his side's recent success down to having strong characters in the squad, citing a deliberate policy of recruiting players with a winning mentality .

The Magpies face Wigan on Saturday, and Pardew believes Roberto Martinez's men will be coming "to prove a point", saying his squad will have to be on their guard but should still be able to win.

Pardew also repeates his praise of the club's owners, saying the club are " spending every penny... to make sure we have a successful company ".
