Steve Bruce reacts to Newcastle United fans jeering their own team

Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce expressed his displeasure after his team was held to a 2-2 draw by Southampton on Saturday.

Newcastle had a chance of picking the three points on the day but was undone by a last gasp equalizer from James Ward-Prowse something that didn't please their fans who booed them after the full-time whistle.

In his post-match interview, Bruce said the fans were entitled to their own opinion but admitted that their first half performance wasn't good enough.

“Look, they're entitled to their opinion. Our first-half performance wasn't good enough, so I'll accept that. In the second half, we were a bit more like ourselves, we played with a bit more intensity, we passed the ball to each other better and maybe did enough to win the match. But it was a disappointing afternoon all around.

“I have to say, it wouldn't have taken much to be better than we were in the first half, so I have to accept that.  But the second half, we showed a bit more intensity. We took the lead twice again today, we took the lead twice against West Ham, but we've only got one point to show for it."
