Pardew aims for Capital One Cup glory

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has vowed to do all he can to end the club’s enduring wait for a major trophy after confirming he intends to name a strong side in Wednesday night’s Capital One Cup game against Leeds at St James’ Park.

Pardew played a second string line-up for the trip to Morecambe in the last round of the competition, but he appreciates the desire for Newcastle to win their first piece of silverware since 1969.

His woeful record in cup competitions during his time at Newcastle does little to bolster belief that trophy glory is imminent, but Pardew is in a buoyant mood as he looks to bounce back from Saturday’s Premier League defeat against Hull.

“Our fans want to win a trophy, they want to go to Wembley and see some silverware and so do I,” Pardew told reporters. “I’ve come close before and I want to win something.

“We’ll have a strong squad against Leeds, but there are one or two I want to look at, to see if they can push to be starters. The likes of Paul Dummett and Sammy Ameobi, who are knocking on the door.

“This will be a team that makes up for a disappointing game on Saturday. I’m still livid about the Hull result and make no mistake, we will be at the races against Leeds. There can be no excuses. It’s a home tie and even though it’s against a great club, we should win.

“I have had some really tricky away ties in domestic cup competitions as manager of this club, but we had a little taster at home last year in the Europa League of what a night fixture is like here, and they were brilliant nights.

“For us, with Leeds bringing 5,000 fans and the great club they are, it’s going to be a really good occasion.”

Pardew went on to offer his view on the latest managerial departure at local rivals Sunderland, the fourth Black Cats boss he has seen dismissed in his relatively brief stint as Newcastle boss.

“There is obviously rivalry there between two massive clubs and in three or weeks from now, their new manager will have a springboard to his career if he wins against Newcastle, or it could have the opposite impact if he loses,” he added after Paolo Di Canio’s sacking on Sunday.

“This will be my fourth Sunderland manager that I have gone against and I have only been here three and a half years. I’m not gloating in any shape of form, by the way. I am just saying it’s a tough job up here, for Sunderland and Newcastle.”
