Wolves goal vs Newcastle: Should controversial late equaliser have counted?

Wolves rescued a draw from the clutches of defeat with a last-minute controversial goal that left Newcastle United boss Rafael Benítez raging.

The Wolves centre-back did put his arms on Dubravka's shoulders but the Newcastle goalkeeper was able to jump for the ball and his decision to try to catch the ball instead of punching it clear ultimately backfired.

It denied Newcastle a precious victory in their fight against relegation and they are just a point above the Premier League drop zone. The Spaniard marched onto the pitch at the final whistle and raged at referee Graham Scott.

"I didn't like the challenge at the end". We have been here for years and it's still very hard to explain that.

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

Benitez said: "In England they don't understand the rules".

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.

Benitez did however concede that his goalkeeper could have been stronger.

'Martin was talking about more protection, Jamaal was saying that maybe Martin could deal with the cross in another way, ' Benitez said.

'For us, it's another bad way to concede and that's it'. I think we created opportunities to score one, two or three goals, but it didn't happen.
