Pardew is rallying Toon.

3pm Upton Park WEST HAM v NEWCASTLE boss Alan Pardew is determined not to ruin his CV by adding another relegation from the Premier League to it.

The 51-year-old has endured a difficult few weeks on Tyneside as his side has slipped down the table to the point where it faces a very real fight for top-flight survival.

Asked if the desperation to avoid adding a black mark to his managerial record, which includes relegation with the Charlton side he inherited from Iain Dowie in December 2006, was an added motivation, Pardew said: "For everyone. It's a big, big club and we don't want to be playing, with all due respect to the Championship, in the Championship."
