Steve Bruce makes plea to Sunderland supporters

Sunderland manager Steve Bruce urges the club's fans to get behind the team following the Black Cats' winless start to the season.

Bruce acknowledges his side have made a poor start, but says he needs time to find the right balance following a string of summer signings.

The Black Cats boss describes loan signing Nicklas Bendtner as a "big, big player" and believes the striker can have a similar impact to Danny Wellbeck, who impressed on loan at the Stadium of Light last season.
