Wigan Athletic boss Steve Bruce was delighted with his young matchwinner Ryan Taylor in their victory over Newcastle United.

"I'm absolutely delighted for the kid because he has had such a bad time and missed a lot of football over the years" said Bruce. "But he is a great kid who has a great delivery of the ball. He was doing it on the practice grounds last week.

"So it was good to see him do it in a game. There was so much pace on it. He is as good as you've ever seen."
