Bruce bemoans Sunderland display
- From the section Football
Sunderland boss Steve Bruce says his team failed to take their opportunities in the first-half as they lost 1-0 to Newcastle in the Tyne-Wear derby at the Stadium of Light.
He also hints that his team might have "got away with something" after Sebastian Larsson appeared to clear Joey Barton's header off the line with his arm.
Newcastle have now lost only one of the last 13 league games against their north-east rivals.
