Steve Bruce insists he will not walk away from Sunderland after a demoralising 2-1 home defeat by Wigan.

The 50-year-old Geordie was subjected to chants for him to go after Franco di Santo fired the Latics to victory at the Stadium of Light in front of chairman Ellis Short. Short had earlier written in his programme notes there was no need for panic after a difficult start to the season, which has now seen the Black Cats win just two of their last 15 league games at the Stadium of Light.

But his manager was left in little doubt as to the feelings of an increasing proportion of the club's own fans and, asked if he had considered his position, a defiant Bruce said: "No, not at all. I have never given up on anything, certainly not in football anyway."
