Pardew uses Rodgers scouting report

Manager Alan Pardew reveals he has spoken to Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers for advice on Newcastle's Europa League opponents Anzhi Makhachkala.

Liverpool beat the Russian side 1-0 at home earlier in the competition but Pardew says the visitors have "outstanding" players and sees manager Guus Hiddink as "one of the best".

Following a goalless draw in the first leg, Newcastle will progress to the last eight with a win at St James' Park.
