Asked when he would speak to Ashley, a coy Bruce said: “Hopefully sometime. Nothing planned just yet. I’m sure you’ll find out when and where it is. He’s here for a day or two, so year, we’ll meet up.”

Fans chanted “Brucey, give us a wave” during the game. Bruce said: “Results will always help us. We’ve still got a lot to do. We’ve had a tough three or four weeks with the injuries and results. We’ll hopefully have a few back. When we have a few back, we’ll be OK.”
