“All week has been positive,” said Bruce. “I’m particularly pleased for Jeff and for Callum to get off the mark, and the young full-back Jamal Lewis had a good debut too. I’m delighted with the attitude against a big strong West Ham team, and I thought the better football came from us.”

Carroll also impressed against his former club after losing weight in the off-season.

“Andy needs a big pat on the back, the way physically he came back, he’s lost 5kg and worked tirelessly on his fitness,” added Bruce. “He looked back to somewhere where Andy Carroll can be. He deserved his chance, and I’m pleased he took it.”
