Bruce calls for character
Phil Bardsley, Michael Turner and Anton Ferdinand. Bruce believes he will have to bring in another defender before the transfer window closes in an attempt to shore things up but believes the players he has should be doing better. "We need a bit of luck and a settled team but I am convinced we will get there," said the Black Cats boss, whose side are just three points above the relegation zone despite some significant spending in the summer. We've only been in the Premier League a couple of seasons and it is a big step up. Eventually we want to get established but to get there takes time and I sincerely hope I've we've got the characters."
