ALAN Pardew’s paid tribute to Newcastle United’s unsung heroes ahead of the club’s visit to The Hawthorns.

Pardew will make a late decision on Cheik Tiote’s availability, with the influential midfielder rated “50-50” for the West Bromwich Albion game.

However, the club’s manager has complete faith in Danny Guthrie and James Perch, who played central midfield in last weekend’s 1-0 win over Norwich City.

Newcastle’s Cheik Tiote doubt for Baggies clash

“Guthrie and Perch have been outstanding,” Pardew told the Gazette. “When I say that I mean all year.

“It was great that Perchy played so well against Norwich.

“He played centre-back against Norwich earlier in the season, and wasn’t at fault for the goals, but he played centre-midfield and ended on the winning side, and I thought that was apt.”
