Newcastle boss Bruce: Almiron needs that first goal

Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce says Miguel Almiron will flourish after scoring his first goal for the club.

Almiron was on target for Paraguay last week and Bruce would love to see him score for Toon against Brighton on Saturday.

Bruce said: "He's done very well here but he hasn't been able to score a goal.

"Miguel and Yoshinori Muto have only been around the Premier League have only been around for six to 12 months.

"The longer they have been here the better that experience will help.

"I have already said that Miguel needs to get a goal and he will calm down again."
