Newcastle boss Bruce excited by Wilson, Carroll partnership

Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce admits he wouldn't want to face a strike partnership of Callum Wilson and Andy Carroll.

The duo played together for the first time in Saturday's 2-0 win over West Ham United.

Speaking after the game, Bruce hinted he could play the pair in the clash with Brighton next weekend.

"We've done it once. But I know being a former centre-half I wouldn't want to play against them (Wilson and Carroll)," Bruce said.

"So look it worked fantastically well.

"Let's hope they both stay well and we have something to look forward to."
