NEWCASTLE (3-4-3):

8 DUBRAVKA: Made two superb saves to earn Newcastle a point – the first, from Jimenez’s close-range header, was exceptional

7 Clark: Made some important interventions and was the most solid member of the Magpies’ back three

6 Fernandez: Fared reasonably well against Jimenez for the most part, but lost Dendoncker for Wolves’ goal

5 Dummett: Only lasted 12 minutes before a hamstring problem forced him to dejectedly limp from the field

7 Hayden: A man of many positions, Newcastle’s Mr Versatile slotted in effectively at right wing-back – likely to stay there tomorrow

8 S Longstaff: An improved display from the youngster, who is gradually rediscovering the form he was displaying in the second of last season

7 M Longstaff: Complemented his brother perfectly at the heart of midfield, running himself into the ground in the second half

7 Willems: Has to be marked up given that he was trying to shackle the mercurial Traore – stuck to his task impressively

6 Joelinton: Still didn’t look like scoring, but deserves credit for giving it a go in the second half despite his groin issues

6 Gayle: Looked good for almost half-an-hour, setting up Almiron’s goal, but can’t seem to get on top of his injury problems

8 Almiron: Was sensational in the first half, claiming his third goal in six games, and was his side’s brightest outfield presence throughout


7 Lejeune (for Dummett, 12): Was thrust into the action from an early stage and helped his side grind out a valuable point

5 Atsu (for Gayle, 28): Played in a wide attacking role but wasn’t able to make much of an impact in his hour on the field

Carroll (for Joelinton, 79)

(not used): Darlow (gk), Watts, Allan, Ritchie.

Man Of The Match: MARTIN DUBRAVKA – Wolves didn’t create a host of chances, but when they did threaten, they were repelled by a superb goalkeeping display.
