Newcastle United midfielder Jack Colback praised the club's supporters after he made his Premier League debut for his boyhood team on Sunday.

The Magpies suffered a 2-0 defeat to Manchester City at St James' Park, and the ex-Sunderland man was delighted with the reception from the fans, despite the loss.

The Mirror quotes Colback as saying: "The fans were brilliant and I could not have asked for any more. They have been fantastic.

"But we've come away without any points so it's disappointing. I don't think we really deserved to get beat. Their only two chances were the goals they scored.

"We just need to show a bit more composure in front of goal."

Colback left Sunderland earlier this summer, after spending 16 years with the Black Cats
