The Tigers boss was named Championship manager of the month at the start of December but his side had not won since until David Meyler's first-minute effort tamed the Tigers.

"I'm pleased to get January out of the way with the nonsense that goes on - I'm amazed my phone hasn't rang today," said Bruce afterwards.

"Since I got that flaming award we've not won. I said that the time - I think it's about five times that's happened to me now.

"Last time I got it, I got the sack three months later. We're unbeaten in seven away from home now but it is nice to get that first league win of the year.

"You have to show a bit of resilience in this league and we've done that again here.

"David Meyler has been a terrific acquisition for us. He's had a really good start to his career here, particularly when you consider he's had a few knee injuries. I just hope he has a bit of luck now and he can stay fit. If he can, he'll be a big player for us."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
