STEVE BRUCE has taken the blame for New­cas­tle’s slump on Sun­day. The Toon man­ager has warned there can be no re­peat of the 3- 0 ham­mer­ing by Brighton but will field a sec­ond- string side against League Two More­cambe tonight, say­ing the com­pe­ti­tion “isn’t a huge pri­or­ity”. Bruce said: “I have a squad big enough to have a go. We will put a strong team out. Peo­ple are des­per­ate to play. “I got the de­ci­sion wrong at the week­end. We got beat. “I have com­pe­ti­tion across the pitch. Can I pick a team fresh and fit enough to beat More­cambe?”
