Newcastle legend Shearer says Bruce needs January support

Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer says manager Steve Bruce needs support in the January market.

Shearer feels Bruce can continue to turn things around after their fantastic 1-0 win over Manchester United.

He told the Evening Chronicle: "There's something in there to work with.

"If you can keep the majority of the squad fit, then I think they'll do all right.

"Then if you look at investment in January, and hopefully that'll come as well.

"I think it was a huge relief to everyone, including Steve, who I was delighted for, because he's had to put up with a lot of crap over the last couple of weeks."
