Greg Tomlinson told members: I contacted the club on Wednesday to express the significant concerns of the (NUST) Board that the club appears to have not learned lessons from the 2015/16 season and that the club is in real danger of sleepwalking to relegation.

The performance at Sheffield United was simply unacceptable, but it was not unexpected for anyone that has watched the full 90 minutes of all our games this season.

Bruce retains the support of owner Mike Ashley but that would change if their seven-point cushion to the bottom three was to disappear in the coming weeks.

Newcastle waited until March before sacking McClaren in 2016 but Rafa Benitez could not then save them from relegation.
