Wolves boss Nuno praises Neves for Newcastle point

Wolves boss Nuno praised Ruben Neves after their 1-1 draw at Newcastle.

The Portuguese arrived late to meet Pedro Neto's cross at St James' Park and his equisite header earned Wolves a valuable point to extended their unbeaten run to five matches.

Nuno said, “I've seen it (in training), it's something that he should do more often, sometimes the game doesn't allow the midfielders to go in the box, but today, after we found wide areas, we were able to put a lot of bodies in the box and fortunately Ruben was there to make a good header.

“It was very important. It was only Willian there, so Ruben got there, so happy for him and let's try to do it again."
