‘MAY DO US A FAVOUR’

Steve Bruce is pinning his hopes on the international break saving Newcastle’s season.

The under-fire Magpies boss is banking on Callum Wilson, Miguel Almiron and Allan Saint-Maximin to return from injury and fire them out of the mire.

With Aston Villa tonight and then relegation-rivals Brighton before the break, the Toon Army fears they could be stranded in the bottom three by then.

But Bruce said: “The international break may just do us a favour.

“We’ve been disappointed to lose our three big players and we’re hoping, fingers crossed, that after the international break, which is coming just at the right time for us, that we can get them back.

“And I will give optimism that with them back we’ve got a wonderful opportunity to pull ourselves out of trouble.”
