Steve Bruce reacts to Newcastle United's Watford draw – and Miguel Almiron's missed chances
In an close game, the Paraguayan’s two opportunities – one in either half – that went begging meant Steve Bruce’s Magpies went three games without a win on Tyneside this season.
“Overall we had two big chances to win and didn't take it,” said the head coach.
“They got a goal out of nothing. We had to chase it.
“We have had a decent week but it could have been better."
When asked about United’s four point return heading into the international break, Bruce said: “In there is Spurs and Arsenal. I am delighted with the response after Norwich. We have had three games in a week, tough games, and haven't lost any in real terms."
Will Hughes opened the scoring at St James’s Park after just two minutes before Fabian Schar levelled on 42.
