Newcastle denied vital victory in fight against relegation

Powered by automated translation

Ruben Neves denied beleaguered Newcastle a priceless Premier League win as Steve Bruce's relegation-threatened side had to make do with a point against Wolves.

Skipper Jamaal Lascelles headed the Magpies into a 52nd-minute lead at St James' Park but Neves levelled with an equally-impressive headed finish 17 minutes from time to ensure that the game - like the previous four between the two sides - finished 1-1.

However, both might have snatched victory in a late flurry during which Wolves defender Romain Saiss unwittingly blocked Joelinton's shot on the line and saw the ball spin agonisingly over before home goalkeeper Martin Dubravka turned substitute Fabio Silva's point-blank header on to the crossbar in stoppage time.
