Steve Bruce has said that Nicklas Bendtner's return to action against Colchester was a timely boost for the squad.
The striker played the final 30 minutes as he attempted to make his recovery from injury and could've snatched all 3 points if truth be known.
Speaking to the press, Bruce said:
'Nicklas hasn't played or trained for probably four or five weeks now and, to be fair to the kid, most people would not have been out there with the kind of swollen ankle he has got.
'I just thought half-an-hour was enough to bleed him back in.
'He showed what a good player he is and gave us an extra dimension.'
