'Heroic' defending pleases Pardew

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew says it was "all hands to the pump" after Jonas Gutierrez was sent off against Manchester United.

Pardew, whose team drew 1-1 at Old Trafford, says his team are the "real deal" and describes his players' performance against United as brilliant and heroic.

He does admit, however, that they were lucky to be awarded a penalty as Demba Ba cancelled out Javier Hernandez's opener from the spot.
