Aston Villa manager Steve Bruce has dismissed speculation about his job security as “ridiculous” following a winless start to the campaign.

Second-bottom Villa host Norwich on Saturday having taken a solitary point from their three opening Sky Bet Championship matches.

Despite feeling the criticism is premature, Bruce admits he needs a victory against the Canaries at Villa Park.

“(Pressure) comes with the territory,” he said at his pre-match press conference. “It is quite ridiculous after a week.

“I shouldn’t have to judge myself after such a short time. I have to ride the storm.

“We all want a good start and managers dread a bad start. The pressure is big at this club – I need a win on Saturday to shut them up.”
