Pardew positive despite defeat
- From the section Football
Newcastle manager Alan Pardew insists his side "can beat anybody" despite losing 2-1 to Fulham on Monday.
Hatem Ben Arfa equalised for the Magpies with a dipping strike - but Hugo Rodallega's header nine minutes later ensured Newcastle remain only five points clear of the drop zone.
Pardew says Fulham's winner was a "poor goal" to concede, but is pleased at Ben Arfa's return from injury.
