Newcastle United defender Daryl Janmaat says he and his team-mates "do not want" another manager at the club.
But after victories over Leicester and Spurs, Janmaat believes the pressure on Pardew is beginning to lift.
The 25-year-old said: "The pressure has eased. We want him as the manager."
Netherlands international Janmaat, one of several new players who arrived at St James' Park over the summer, added: "The manager was under a lot of pressure so it's nice that we have given him some points.
"I now expect the pressure to ease on him. We do not want another manager."
Newcastle travel to Manchester City on Wednesday in the fourth round of the Capital One Cup.
