Pardew in line for West Brom job

Alan Pardew is set to be named as West Brom's new manager.

The former Crystal Palace boss was not at The Hawthorns to see Albion throw away a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 with Newcastle on Tuesday but Press Association Sport understands he is expected to be unveiled on Wednesday.

West Brom built on the point earned at Tottenham on Saturday but Jonny Evans' late own goal earned the Magpies a point as they ended a four-game losing run.

Hal Robson-Kanu and Sam Field put the Baggies in control before Ciaran Clark started Newcastle's recovery and caretaker boss Gary Megson believes the squad are making progress despite Albion extending their winless run to 12 Premier League games.

He said: "We are on a poor run but we've also just been down to Spurs and now drawn 2-2. It's baby steps but they are making them. We've got some decent players, all honest, never is there a doubt over their workrate but sometimes we don't have the wherewithal to see games out.

"In terms of the points we've lost, not what the opposition have won, they've come from deal-able problems.

"It's a right kick in the wotsits. It was our own fault, we've scored two really good goals, passed the ball about fine, they've swung a corner in and scored from six yards and spanked a free-kick in which is an own goal."

Albion are two points above the bottom three ahead of Saturday's visit Pardew's former employers Palace.

Megson added: "The players are off tomorrow, they've not been off for eight days. I'm in at 10am to see the chairman, I'm not aware of what it's about."

A draw ended Newcastle's dismal run and they now sit five points above the relegation zone with a trip to Chelsea coming up on Saturday.

Boss Rafael Benitez had mixed feelings after the game despite salvaging a positive result.

"We're disappointed and pleased at the same time," he said. "Disappointed because we did quite well in the fist half, had the game under control and then conceded another late goal.

"We had talked about that, to learn from the mistake of the past, to be more focused in the last minutes. The second goal was even worse but the reaction of the team was really good.

"We didn't deserve to lose the four games. But with this bad run, to react the way we did at 2-0 down is very positive for the future."
