Steve Bruce pleased with Sunderland's win against Stoke City

Sunderland manager Steve Bruce is surprised by the 'mass hysteria' in the media leading up to today's win against Stoke.

The former Birmingham manager says he knew the people were passionate in the north east but he couldn't understand the reaction to their start to the season.

The black cats ended Stoke's unbeaten run with a convincing 4-0 victory that Bruce put down to taking an early lead.
