Alan Pardew clings on to Newcastle job

Alan PardewAlan Pardew is still desperately clinging on to his job after Newcastle recovered from two goals down to snatch a point at home to Hull. The comeback means that the beleaguered boss remains at the helm, for now, however he continues to top the Premier League Sack Race, with the Toon without a win to their name this season.

Newcastle's failure to carve out that elusive first win means they still only have five victories in 2014, while they have just three points from five matches so far during the 2014/15 campaign, which leaves them rock-bottom of the Premier League. However, it could have been far worse on Saturday after Hull took a shock 2-0 lead, only for the spirited hosts to eventually get their act together and claw their way back into the game.

The planned mass protest at St James' Park never materialised - although there were still plenty of anti-Pardew banners and posters on show - instead, it was owner Mike Ashley who bared the brunt of the home supporters' frustration. Ashley will reportedly give Pardew more time, with the Magpies travelling down to London to face Crystal Palace in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday, followed by Stoke away in the league next Monday.

Elsewhere West Brom boss Alan Irvine remains the second favourite for the chop despite leading the Baggies to a surprise 1-0 win at White Hart Lane on Sunday. Meanwhile Sam Allardyce, who conjured up an equally startling 3-2 victory over Liverpool, is still hovering in the mix, as is QPR boss Harry Redknapp.
