Newcastle were lucky admits Alan Pardew

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew admits his side were lucky as they hold on for a 2-1 win at Wolves.

The Magpies now sit third in the Premier League table and Pardew says their haul of 15 points from seven games shows how good a side they are.

Pardew does concede that Newcastle got "two big calls in their favour" a foul in the penalty area on Wolves midfielder Jamie O'Hara and a late disallowed equaliser that he said "looked fine to me."
