Defender Willy Boly headed past the Slovak in the 94th minute, although replays suggest he might have impeded Dubravka in doing so.

Ki Sung-yeung came home early from the Asian Cup with a hamstring injury but Rafa Benitez said he was now fit to be considered for selection tonight.

"You have to protect the keeper. We have been here for years, and it's very hard to explain that".

Miguel Almiron entered from the bench in the 72nd minute during Newcastle's 1-1 draw against Wolverhampton on the road, as Wolves scored a stoppage-time equalizer.

"In England, they don't understand the rules - you can say whatever you want to say".

Some might says that Wolves vs Newcastle is not a Monday Night Football fixture to set the pulse racing, but I always enjoy the atmos when Molineux is on TV and they have better music than most.

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.

They have the chance to add plenty of points in the coming games as rivals struggle with their form.

'For us, it's another bad way to concede and that's it'.

The Magpies moved above Cardiff and into 16th, but are only one point above the drop zone.
