THE Steve Bruce era might still be at a relatively formative stage, but Isaac Hayden claims Newcastle United are starting to develop a distinct new identity that will help drive them forward over the remainder of the season.

The Magpies head to Sheffield United tomorrow night looking to build on Saturday’s impressive showing against Manchester City and force themselves into the top half of the table for the first time this season.

Their weekend display against the reigning champions garnered deserved praise, with Newcastle’s players displaying impressive levels of organisation, commitment and effort as they restricted City to a handful of goalscoring opportunities.

“I think an identity is starting to form now, and I think the crowd are responding to what we’re trying to do,” said Hayden, who is expected to retain his place in the starting side alongside fellow midfielder Jonjo Shelvey at Bramall Lane.

“It’s a credit to the players that haven’t played as much,” said Hayden.

But I just think Manquillo’s experience certainly showed.” Meanwhile, Newcastle are pondering whether to make a move for £1m-rated Carlisle United centre-half Jarrad Branthwaite.

When everything goes to plan, they are able to offer a considerable threat on the counter-attack, as evidenced by their rip-roaring display in last month’s 3-2 win at West Ham United, and while it will inevitably take time for new faces and philosophies to bed in, Hayden feels a new approach is beginning to emerge.
