Gary McSheffrey has today defended Steve Bruce and announced that sacking him would be a disaster.

‘We are disappointed. We were poor, no excuses. A poor team and poor individual performances and we’ve got to change it fast.

‘That is the worst performance over the 90 minutes since I’ve been here, personally and as a team.

‘We’ve gone five games without winning, including three defeats, and it’s not good enough for a club of this stature. We have got to get it right soon. I’m speechless really.

‘I can’t put my finger on it. It looked like a lack of belief and confidence and we’ve got to change our mentality.

‘This is a funny old league. We could go to Derby County on Saturday and win and it could all be turned around.

‘In my opinion, it is not fair for people to call for the boss to go. He bought me to the club and he has been nothing but good for me. If he was to go now, it would be a disaster.’
