Alan Pardew hopes Papiss Cisse continues fine form

Alan Pardew hopes that Papiss Cisse can continue his fine run of form going into their Premier League fixture with Leicester City on Saturday.

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew hopes that Senegalese striker Papiss Cisse can keep up his fine run of form going into their home fixture against Leicester City on Saturday.

Pardew is still looking to find his side's first win of the campaign and believes the 29-year-old will be a key factor in achieving that.

Cisse has scored four times in his last three Premier League matches, after saving his side a point against both Hull City and Swansea City.

"When goalscorers get their tails up, they have an unbelievable knack of finding a goal," the 53-year-old told Sky Sports News.

"The first goal at Swansea, I don't think there is anyone else on our staff who could have scored that goal, and that is what I mean by finding a technique that gets you a goal.

"He does that on the training ground on a more regular basis when he is in form."

Pardew is under huge pressure as Newcastle sit in the relegation zone after securing just four points in seven games.
