Pardew said: "When we trained here last night, he [Taylor] hit three or four better than the one he scored with tonight.
"I should think in the Premier League, there are not too many players at dead balls who have the accuracy of Ryan.
"He is desperate to play in the first team, but he has got some good performances from Saturday's game against Tottenham in front of him, so he has got to be patient.

Opposite number Dusan Bajevic knows his side's task is difficult, but he was in no mood to concede defeat.
