Wolverhampton Wanderers vs. Newcastle United - Football Match Report

Newcastle United team

Newcastle Predicted XI: Wolves (A)

Wolves rescued a draw from the clutches of defeat with a last-minute controversial goal that left Newcastle United boss Rafael Benítez raging.

Those cheers turned to howls of rage in stoppage time as Boly heading in the equaliser after beating Newcastle keeper Martin Dubravka to the ball.

Wins for Cardiff and Burnley over the weekend didn't help the Magpies' cause with Rafa Benitez's side now only outside the bottom three on goal difference.

When asked if Newcastle should have had a free-kick after Boly's challenge, the Spaniard added: "In England they don't understand the rules so you can say whatever you want to say". "We have been here for years and it's still very hard to explain that".

Some might says that Wolves vs Newcastle is not a Monday Night Football fixture to set the pulse racing, but I always enjoy the atmos when Molineux is on TV and they have better music than most.

"You have to be really disappointed with the way we conceded in both games against this team", said Benitez, United's manager.

"The first game we had a player with a broken nose, we conceded in the last minute and we should have had a penalty and there should have been a red card, but nobody said anything. We have one more point but it is a pity because we could have had three".
