NEWCASTLE United manager Steve Bruce has hinted that his side's current form usually culminates in the sacking of the boss following their defeat to Wolves. 

The 2-0 loss at Molyneux meant that the Magpies have started the season without a win in seven Premier League games and sit second bottom in the table.

Newcastle were one of the favourites to be relegated this season while Bruce's odds have shortened to be sacked. He can't be the first Premier League manager to be sacked this season following the dismissal of Watford boss Xisco Munoz yesterday. 

The club are in a desperate state of affairs with a disgruntled fan base desperate to see results on the pitch along with a resolution to the failed takeover of the club from the Saudi PIF consortium. 

Bruce said: “Whoever you are in the Premier League, whether you’re manager of Newcastle or not, you haven’t won in seven games. We all know the drill, we all know what comes.

“The quicker we get a result the better but as I say, that’s the story of so far where it could have been our day. Unfortunately it wasn’t.

“The experience I’ve had over the last 900 odd games or whatever it is helps you but still disappoints you and upsets you.

“The first thing we look at is, could we have done any better, could I have done any better?

“I look at myself straight away and think if there’s anything that I could do better so we’ll keep working away at it and bashing away."

Newcastle now have two weeks out of action due to the international break where Bruce will be hopeful of welcoming back a number of first team players who have been on the treatment. 

Joe Willock was the latest casuality after he had to be subbed off in the first half at Molineux. 

Bruce added: “Unfortunately he’s took a bang to his hip and couldn’t carry on.

“That’s football really. You get injuries and you pick them up and unfortunately we’re picking up a bit too many.

“The international break will help in that respect.

“We hope one or two or three that were regulars will be there or there abouts."
