Late Jacob Murphy free-kick earns resilient Newcastle a draw at Wolves

The lively Podence’s optimistic penalty claims went ignored when Federico Fernandez blocked his shot and Wolves continued to press without reward.

Much like the first half, Newcastle relied on sporadic breaks and Miguel Almiron’s shot was blocked after good work from Murphy and Wilson on the hour.

Neto’s deep free-kick was cleared to the striker, lurking on the edge of the area, and he cracked in a fine half-volley from 18 yards.
