Wolverhampton Wanderers had the benefit of a man advantage for a large portion of the match, but it took four minutes into second half stoppage time to find a winner, as they defeated Newcastle United, 1-2.
It was a very entertaining affair from start to finish, as Wolves came in this evening with a couple of key starters getting rested in Raul Jimenez and Joao Moutinho. After both sides stated early intent of threatening to score, Wolves went ahead in the 17th minute as Diogo Jota scored for the second time in as many games, as he chested a Heider Costa cross before beating the helpless keeper. Newcastle would get a deserved equalizer but a red card shown to DeAndre Yedlin early in the second half gave Wolves license to control the match and, after much patience, scored at the death when Jota sprinted into a shooting position, but his blocked attempt was followed up by a Matt Doherty header.
