Alan Pardew insists Jak Alnwick can be Newcastle's derby hero

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew believes his side need to avenge their previous three derby defeats to Sunderland, and insists Newcastle must remain free of poor mistakes.

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has told goalkeeper Jak Alnwick to forget his White Hart Lane nightmare and make himself a derby hero.

The 21-year-old, who has been thrown in at the deep end in the wake of injuries to Tim Krul and Rob Elliot, endured a difficult evening as Tottenham put four past him, the first as a result of his own howler, in Wednesday night's Capital One Cup quarter-final.

Newcastle favourites in derby but Sunderland have history on their side

The Tyne-Wear derby will be a hugely important fixture for both Gus Poyet and Alan Pardew, who have both overseen disappointing spells this season.

There's still two days to go before the Tyne-Wear derby and the kickoff can't come soon enough for Newcastle United and Sunderland fans.

Just in case this fixture needed any more drama, Newcastle signed Jack Colback from Sunderland last summer, who will now pull on a black and white shirt in the famous fixture. Colback, of course, scored in this game last term, and if he were to do so in Newcastle colours, it would raise the roof at the Gallowgate End.

Ben Arfa set for January move ahead of documentary about French player

Hull City manager Steve Bruce expressed his disappointment after central defender Michael Dawson was ruled out for at least a month with a hamstring injury.

Hatem Ben Arfa is set for a January move after finding himself unwanted at Newcastle and Hull, while in France, a film is being produced about the mercurial winger.

The 27-year-old former Marseille player appears set for a January transfer after Newcastle manager Alan Pardew declared he did not want to take Ben Arfa back from his loan spell at Hull, where boss Steve Bruce has written him out of his plans.
