Steve Bruce vows to continue as Newcastle boss despite woeful defeat to Sheffield United

Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce insists he’ll ‘never walk away from a challenge’ despite growing pressure on his position in the north-east.

The Magpies were dismal in a 1-0 defeat to Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Tuesday night and that was before Ryan Fraser gave the Blades a numerical advantage when he was sent off shortly before half-time.

It was the first win of the season for Chris Wilder’s men and it increased the pressure on Bruce’s position.

Supporters’ patience with the side’s style of play and Bruce’s tactics have wore thin in recent weeks but the former Sunderland boss insists he won’t resign.

‘The first half was arguably as poor as we’ve played for a long time, there’s no disputing that,’ said Bruce.

‘I’m bitterly disappointed that we haven’t played well enough, especially in the first half. I’ll never ever walk from a challenge, and I think I’ve been it long enough to have that respect.

‘I understand that, especially watching the first half, we weren’t good enough, and at the end of the day, I take responsibility for that, because I pick the team.’
