Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has paid tribute to Swansea City for their achievements this season but has them in his sights in the Premier League.
Newcastle go into the game against Swansea after three wins from their last four Premier League games but City have just won the Capital One Cup after a 5-0 victory over Bradford City.
Alan Pardew's side won the game at Liberty Stadium last season when Papiss Cisse scored with a memorable curling goal to ensure victory.
Pardew says that he admires City's achievements this season and knows that his side must beat Swansea if they are to catch them in the league.
Newcastle United's improved recent form has taken them away from the relegation zone as well but Alan Pardew says that he feels his side's recovery has only just begun.
Pardew said: "We've corrected some of the mistakes we've made, no more than that at this stage. I think there's still a long way to go this season for all the teams."
