Wolverhampton Wanderers shared the spoils for the sixth time in 10 Premier League games as Jonny Otto equalised in the second half to earn them a 1-1 draw at Newcastle United on Sunday.

 

A dull first half came alive when Jamaal Lascelles met a cross from Federico Fernandez with a thumping header to put the hosts ahead in the 37th minute.

Wolves were far more threatening after the break and Jonny fired home from close range in the 73rd minute after Newcastle keeper Martin Dubravka flapped at a cross.

The visitors looked the more likely winners, especially after Newcastle had Sean Longstaff sent off on 82 minutes for a rash challenge on Ruben Neves but a draw was a fair result.

Newcastle remained in 17th spot while Wolves, now unbeaten in eight matches in all competitions, are 11th.
