Following yesterdays game both management teams had a lot to say

Latics boss Steve Bruce:

‘The players’ attitude and application was there for all to see.

‘If we can keep that up we’ll stay out of the bottom three. The player needed a bit of belief and they’ve got it now.

‘I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the month I have been here, we’ve given some good teams good games and today we came out on top against another good side.’

Newcastle boss Sam Allardyce:

‘This is a big club and there will be speculation about my position as manager following the run of results that we have had’

Newcastle assistant boss Nigel Pearson:

‘It’s disappointing to put in a performance like that, we should be doing better in these games.

‘We’ve no doubt it is the type of display which is way below par. We are Jekyll and Hyde and it’s not good enough, we must find some consistency.

‘We understand the fans’ frustration, booing us off. I can assure everyone we are working hard to put this right.’
