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

Newcastle Predicted XI: Wolves (A)

Benitez was also riled when his side were defeated 2-1 by Wolves in December, losing to another stoppage-time goal.

Newcastle's record signing Miguel Almiron, the Paraguayan striker who joined from Major League Soccer side Atlanta United, gave the visiting fans plenty to cheer about as he made his debut. "It was another bad way to concede".

Just 21, Longstaff has emerged in midfield for Newcastle United as not just a promising player, but a reliable one.

Benitez, for his part, demanded more protection from referees in a strongly-worded verdict on officiating standards in the English game.

"Everybody knew that we had the three points, and it was really disappointing to concede the way that we conceded", Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez said, adding that his team should have dealt with the late high ball that led to the goal.

The result has left United one point above the Premier League's relegation zone with 12 games left to play.

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.

"Until the referee whistles we keep going".

"It's not about the point, the story of the game could have been different as the first half was totally controlled".

"What I'm disappointed with is to concede".

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.
