Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew insists that he will not "walk away" from his manager's job, despite frustration from the club's supporters.

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has admitted that will not step down as manager at St James' Park, despite growing unrest among the supporters.

A number of disgruntled fans have called on the club to end Pardew's four-year stint after suffering six consecutive defeats in the Premier League.

When asked in Thursday's press conference if he will leave, Pardew said: "No, I won't walk away. I love this job and I am going too fight as long as I can for it. That's what I have always done.

"I have been in tricky situations before. This is a situation where I perhaps need to dig deep, and I have got no problem in doing that. I will dig deep on Saturday and make sure I make the right decisions to get us a win."

Newcastle will take on struggling side Cardiff City on home turf this Saturday.
