Boly jumped with Dubravka to bundle the ball home in the 95th minute

Willy Boly scored a dramatic late equaliser for Wolves to deny Newcastle a precious victory in their battle against relegation from the Premier League.

Rafael Benitez's Newcastle had appeared on course to move three points clear of the relegation zone courtesy of Isaac Hayden's goal earlier in the second half.

But as the game drifted beyond the minimum four minutes allocated for added time, Boly climbed above Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka to head in Adama Traore's cross.

It was a harsh on Newcastle who appealed for a foul, with the former Porto defender appearing to have both arms on Dubravka.

However, referee Graham Scott waved away their protests to allow the goal.

Benitez's side went in front when Hayden found the bottom-right corner after collecting a fine pass from Fabian Schar and wrong-footing home goalkeeper Rui Patricio.

Wolves controlled proceedings in the first period and created several chances to score after the break, with Newcastle content to sit back and counter-attack.

When the hosts did break through, Matt Doherty and Raul Jimenez were guilty of close-range misses.

The result leaves Newcastle one point above the bottom three in 16th place while Wolves remain seventh.
