Newcastle boss Steve Bruce: I need a win

Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce admits he needs a win to get the fans onside.

His side travel to Norwich on Saturday before a trip to Spurs next weekend, and already the pressure is on after an opening day defeat to Arsenal.

"I do not think I will be entitled to that patience (Rafa Benitez had)," he said. "But the 10 games which he was afforded, there was not a murmur in the ground. I do not think I will have that luxury.

"So a win and a good performance would settle everything down. A win without a performance would do."
