Newcastle manager Alan Pardew is convinced his return to the dressing room will help the Toon produce the goods, as reported by BBC Sport.

The Geordies have lost two out of three games when Pardew has been banned from the stadium after headbutting Hull’s David Meyler.

Poor performances in recent weeks is a major issue for the North East side who appear to be on their summer holiday’s already.

Pardew is adamant that his return to the dressing room and then up in the stands will help his side produce the goods as he travels to one of his former clubs Southampton today.

“If you take a personality out of the dressing room when you have a small team it’s going to have an effect,” Pardew said.

“I’m looking forward to having some impact in there.

“You have that relationship with the players that goes back – you signed contracts with them, or you have some personal issue with them, you have an attachment that no-one else can have.

“Put on top my personality – which we all know is a little bit of a winning mentality – and I want to make sure we want to win.”
