Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez frustrated with Wolves equaliser

Newcastle United boss Rafa Benitez was left frustrated after their 1-1 draw with Wolves.

Wolves defender Willy Boly scored a dramatic late equaliser as Newcastle were denied a precious victory in their battle against relegation from the Premier League.

Benitez's visitors had appeared on course to move three points clear of the relegation zone courtesy of Isaac Hayden's earlier strike at Molineux.

The Toon manager said, "We had to be strong enough defending the cross.

"These kind of balls you can do a little bit better, punch the ball. That's it. It was not very clear watching the replay. It is something we have to defend better. We know it is England and people will come to the keeper.

"I was not happy with some decisions from the referee, but overall he was fine."
