Newcastle 2 Wolves 2: Mags rocked by stunning comeback

Have your say

Newcastle let slip a two-goal lead as Wolves hit back for a precious Premier League point in Terry Connor’s first match in caretaker charge of the visitors.

It was not what the Magpies wanted in the build-up to next week’s eagerly-awaited Tyne-Wear derby clash with Sunderland.

Papiss Cisse and Jonas Gutierrez gave the hosts a 2-0 lead inside 20 minutes, but Wolves showed great resolve after the break, with Matt Jarvis and Kevin Doyle rescuing an unlikely point.
