Steve Bruce on Miguel Almiron…

It’s a fair bet that Miguel Almiron will return to the XI – and Steve Bruce says it has been difficult leaving him out of it.

“You don’t know how hard it has been for me to leave out Miguel Almiron.

“Seriously, you don’t know how hard. I picked the team against West Ham and didn’t start him and we win.

“Arguably, it was our best performance.

“I leave that team in place for the second game because I think that was only fair on those who played at West Ham.

“I was tempted in the third game and didn’t go for him (Almiron started on the bench).

“Last week he’d been on international duty and didn’t get back until Friday.”
