Steve Bruce

has spoken about his team’s performance and their current form.

“I was very, very pleased with us. Certainly the loss of Almiron affected us a little bit, but the first half in particular I was very, very pleased with how we played.

“We’re disappointed that we didn’t see it through and disappointed with the number of chances, unfortunately, we’ve missed.

“At this level, we always know that you’re not going to get bundles of them, so it’s important that you take them when they come your way, so that was a disappointment and a frustration.”

Asked about Ruben Neves’ equalizer, Bruce responded:

“I think he’ll be disappointed with the goal. First of all, we should stop the cross – that’s the basic for a full-back.

“It was a great header from Neves, but I’m sure Martin being the type of lad he is and getting a big hand to it like he did, I’m sure he’ll be disappointed that he didn’t keep it out.

“But he pulled off a wonderful save five minutes later.”
