Newcastle United pull in lowest home crowd since December 2012 – Steve Bruce reacts to the drop in attendance

But Bruce – who has gone three games without a home win since taking the job – thinks a victory or two will be enough to see the numbers through the gates increase.
“All I can do is try and get on with my job. We can never take for granted the support this great club has got. Hopefully it will be onwards and upwards with the team,” said the head coach.
“I am sure they will come back when we win a few games.”
