Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has expressed his delight following Sunday's 1-0 win over Fulham in the Premier League.

Papiss Cisse scored late on at St James' Park to lift the Magpies five points clear of the relegation zone.

"No money can buy how important that goal is to us as a football club," Pardew told BBC Sport.

"In the second half we deserved it - we were much more composed than in the first half when I thought we were nervous and a bit tired from midweek.

"It's a fabulous goal and goes to show we're a team who won't give in, we battle to the end."

Newcastle return to Europa League action on Thursday as they look to overturn a 3-1 first-leg deficit against Benfica in the quarter-finals.
