Bruce On The Edge

Bruce On The Edge

Birmingham manager Steve Bruce believes his side regained their pride against Manchester United, but is he fooling himself?

Bruce: 'I was very pleased with their first-half performance, so much so that United had to make a change and bring on a big name in Wayne Rooney.

'It was a terrible start to the second half and within five minutes, the cup tie was effectively over as we went two goals behind.

'But we were then looking for people to roll their sleeves up and I felt that we did that. The players have got a bit of pride back.

'It is not easy when you are 3-0 down to Manchester United with all the quality they have got.

'But my team stuck at it and in the end, we had two young kids on the pitch in Marcos Painter and Neil Kilkenny who have come through the ranks which is fantastic for us.'
