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

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

Here is how we predict Newcastle to line up against Wolves.

"Maybe it's a foul before on Almiron too, you can say many things but it won't change what happened, like in the first game", said Benitez, whose side had been on course for three precious points in their fight against relegation following Isaac Hayden's second-half strike. With the clock ticking down towards the 95th minute, a long goal into the box saw Willy Boly rise high and head home.

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

Replays showed, however, that the Slovakian was meagre in his attempt to claim the ball.

With the final whistle sounding just seconds after the restart, Newcastle manager Benitez came stomping onto the pitch to share a few breezy opinions with referee Graham Scott and his linesmen.

Newcastle's protests were minimal, however, and it did not take long before Dubravka was exchanging heated words with his captain Jamaal Lascelles.

"It's something we have to defend better, the cross". You have to protect the keeper.

"It was a dramatic end, but we deserve a point because we played a good match, we controlled the game and we created opportunities".

After this latest set-back, he said: 'In England they don't understand the rules.

"They scored in the second half when we made a mistake and after that they defended very well, but we tried everything to score and got it in the last minute".
