Newcastle boss Steve Bruce has backed Miguel Almiron to hit the goal trail this season.

On the evidence of his Premier League career so far, Almiron simply does not appear to have the quality to score goals on a consistent basis at this level.

Do you think Almiron is good enough for the Premier League?

He scored 13 goals in the MLS in his final season with Atlanta, but it is fair to say that the Premier League is a massive step up – and one that he is yet to fully make.

Bruce has praised Almiron for his work-rate and says that he just needs one goal to get him going, and that he is confident it will happen.

So far this season, Almiron has averaged 1.3 shots per-game, after 1.9 per-game in his first six months at the club, which means that he has taken 26 shots in the Premier League without scoring.

In nine months at the club so far, Almiron has failed to register a single goal or assist for Newcastle in all competitions.
