Pardew and O’Neill make amends before Newcastle play Sunderland

The managers of Newcastle United and Sunderland, Alan Pardew and Martin O’Neill, have agreed to put any bad blood behind them ahead of what is still likely to be a feisty Tyne-Wear derby this weekend, the Daily Telegraph has reported.

Pardew and O’Neill row on the touchline

The sides last met in March - a 1-1 draw - and Pardew and O’Neill at one point had to be separated by the fourth official and members of one team’s coaching staff. Newcastle goalkeeping coach Andy Woodman was also sent to the stands at half-time while the incidents did not end with the final whistle, as Sunderland captain Lee Cattermole was dismissed by the referee for verbal abuse once the match was over.

A truce was engendered at the League Manages’ Association end-of-season dinner when Pardew and O’Neill shook hands, with the latter congratulating the former on his work taking Newcastle to the upper reaches of the table, and Pardew returning the compliment for what O’Neill achieved at Sunderland in a short space of time.

The match that caused the furore saw Nicklas Bendtner put the Black Cats in front with a penalty mid-way through the first-half, with Sunderland leading almost until the final whistle. A late Shola Ameobi goal however gave Newcastle a share of the points.
