Newcastle boss Pardew admits they were fortunate with Wolves win
Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew admits they were fortunate with victory at Wolves.
In the first minute of five added on at the end, and minutes after a diving header from Steven Fletcher had set up a grandstand finish, there came a crucial decision.
Asked if his side deserved the win, Pardew replied: "I don't think deserved is the word I'd use today.
"We did play well in the first half which gave us a platform to win the game, but Wolves were very good.
"I watched their last two performances here when they were beaten, but they were a lot better today, and they can take great heart from it.
"In my view, if you want to use the word deserved, they deserved something from the game themselves.
"We were a little fortunate with that decision at the end. I've seen it. It's really tight."
