Newcastle boss Rafael Benitez 'didn't like' challenge on keeper for Wolves equaliser

Wolverhampton Wanderers's three-game winning in the Premier League was halted after playing to a 1-1 draw with Newcastle United.

Newcastle were seconds away from victory before Wolves defender Wily Boly popped up in second-half stoppage time to snatch an equaliser.

They looked to have all three points until Willy Boly was on hand to seize on a cross that dropped through Dubravka's hands at the back post.

'I didn't like the challenge at the end.


"[Should Newcastle have had a free-kick?] In England they don't understand the rules so you can say whatever you want to say". You have to protect the keeper.

It was the second time Newcastle had conceded an injury time goal to Wolves after Matt Doherty's victor in December. We have been here for years and it's still very hard to explain that.

On Monday he said that debutant and record signing Miguel Almiron was fouled in the build-up to Wolves' equaliser.

'For us, it's another bad way to concede and that's it'.


A heavier weighting is given to the most recent match in descending order to the fifth last one, with the intention of showing who is most in form.

And the 32-year-old is pleased with the performance of the team, describing the draw as "good as a win".

Moutinho added: "I saw a goal".

Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota were thwarted by Dubravka and Wolves sit seventh, two points ahead of Watford.


"With this kind of ball, you can do a little bit better - just punch the ball and finish".
