Steve Bruce reacts to Newcastle United win

'My perspective has never ever changed since I walked in 15 months ago. I said we’d treat cups with all the respect they deserve.'

Newcastle United have made a change at the break with Ryan Fraser coming on for Ciaran Clark.

Matt Ritchie has slipped into left back, Emil Krafth shifted to the middle and DeAndre Yedlin to the right.

HT thoughts from our man at the Mazuma Stadium, Miles Starforth

Very, very good first-half performance. NUFC competed from the first whistle and they've been very positive with the ball. Murphy and Almiron have been full of running, and Joelinton's got two much-needed goals, which will hopefully do him the world of good.
