Steve Bruce has spoken to the media this morning via zoom, the popular video platform.
He has previewed Newcastle’s return to Premier League action on Sunday against Sheffield United.
It will be the first game we have played since we took Southampton apart 1-0, with a late goal from Allan Saint-Maximin at St. Mary’s Stadium back on 7th March.
That put us in 13th place after 29 games played, and Newcastle and the rest of the Premier League clubs are hoping to finish the season by playing two games a week from now on.
Here’s some of what Bruce s(shown above) said today:
“The two Longstaffs are there or thereabouts in terms of availability.”
“We hope after the weekend they could be involved. There’s a doubt about Matt Ritchie and Dwight Gayle has picked up a knock on his knee so there is one or two niggles.”
“We’ve got ourselves in a decent position and we’ve got nine to go. We’ve got five of the bottom six to play so it’s all to play for.”
“We’ve all experienced how strange it is with the two games on Wednesday without fans.”
“If ever we need reminding that this game of ours belongs to the supporters we just have to tune in. It’s certainly not the same spectacle.”
some appropriate words there from the manager.
