Mullins: We’ll go to war for Pardew

Mullins declared: “If he is under pressure, we will all fight for him and scrap for him.

“We have good camaraderie in the dressing room and the gaffer comes under that bracket.

“The gaffer has got a lot of stick over the last couple of weeks and the boys understood he was under a lot of pressure.

“It was brilliant that we could pull out the two wins for him. Now we can start looking upwards.”
