  • Benitez tells players to forget about revenge against Wolves

Wolves goal vs Newcastle: Should Willy Boly's goal have counted?

But the goal stood to cancel out Isaac Hayden's second-half opener as the spoils were shared at Molineux.

But Willy Boly scored a controversial equaliser in the final stages of injury time as he headed the ball past Dubravka.

"We continued to try it in the last minute because we try it all game and we deserved that draw, but we need to continue to work, and improve, and win our games".

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

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


But when asked if there are any problems between the two players, Benitez said after the game: 'No, it's obvious the disappointment is for everyone. We deserved the win, as we played well, but it just wasn't to be. You have to protect the keeper.

"We have to defend this better, people will come against the keeper so he has to be stronger".

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".

"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".

"The Law is clear - the sole timekeeper is the Referee", he wrote on Twitter.
