Newcastle due a break - Pardew

Alan Pardew believes his side were due a break after a deflected goal in stoppage time gave them a 2-1 win over West Brom at St. James' Park.

The Magpies manager is unable to explain why scorer Papiss Cisse is yet to recapture his mesmerising form from the end of last season, but is relieved to claim all three points with a "tired" squad following their 1-0 midweek Europa League exploits against Club Bruges.
