Birmingham City boss Steve Bruce is thrilled by the impact made by loan star Nicklas Bendtner since he moved to St Andrew's from Arsenal. The Danish striker scored the winner in City's opening day success against Colchester United and followed it up with a sensational display in Wednesday's 1-0 victory at Sunderland. "When you think he is only 18, he's a fantastic talent and you can see that," Bruce told the club's official website. "He has still got a lot to learn but you can see the raw ingredients. "He takes the ball, goes at people and wants to commit them. "I thought we looked a threat all night with him and (Mikael) Forssell."
