Newcastle manager Bruce: Burnley a huge victory for us

Newcastle United manager Steve Bruce admits his side knew about the 'enormity' of reaching 32 points ahead of their clash with Burnley last weekend.

The Magpies were able to reach the total thanks to a come-from-behind win over Burnley, and now sit six points ahead of 18th-placed Fulham with a game in hand.

"It certainly helps and we knew the enormity of it," Bruce said ahead of Toon's clash with West Ham United.

"It was a good time to get three points. It's about getting the points you need, whatever that total is.

"It sets us on our way, we still have a long way to go.

"There's still a lot of twists and turns in my opinion because that's what the Premier League is but it was a huge victory for us.

"But Burnley was a huge victory for us."
