    Newcastle are up to ninth in the table after winning three of their last four games.

    Magpies boss Steve Bruce said: “We’ve given ourselves a nice platform, but we’re only halfway there. We’ve got to show the same resilience we’ve shown over the last few months, and see where it takes us.

    “I can’t fault their [the players] attitude and their spirit. The way they are speaks volumes. They’re a good group. If they stay like that, they deserve the rewards they’re getting at the moment.”
