The pressure has been piled on Pardew due to Newcastle's poor form at the start of the season, and he is demanding a response from his side as some supporters prepare to protest his position at the club following the 4-0 defeat to Southampton last week.
"I don't know about patience, this is a time to stand up and deliver really," the Magpies boss told reporters. "Saturday is an important game for us because we've had a difficult start.
"Even if we'd got a point it would have been an okay start because I think we've had some tough games.
"But now we have a game at home where the pressure is really going to be on us. We have to deliver."
Newcastle have collected two points from their opening four games this season.
