BBC Sport - Stoke 1-0 Newcastle: Pardew bemoans 'fluke' winner

Pardew bemoans Stoke's 'fluke' winner

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew is disappointed to lose 1-0 to Stoke after a "fluke" winner inflicts a fourth consecutive Premier League defeat on the Magpies.

Dutch defender Erik Pieters' cross sailed over Newcastle goalkeeper Tim Krul for the game's only goal just before half-time.

The Magpies have conceded 12 goals and failed to score during their recent run of four league defeats.
