Hayden won’t play Newcastle blame game
Newcastle midfielder Isaac Hayden has refused to blame goalkeeper Martin Dubravka for Wolves’ equaliser on Monday.
The Magpies looked to be heading for all three points at Molineux thanks to Hayden’s effort, but Willy Boly struck late on for the hosts.
Dubravka failed to hold on to Adama Traore’s cross in the build up to the equaliser although Hayden says the team must take responsibility for their failure to claim the win.
‘He is a top-class goalkeeper; we win as a team, lose as a team and draw as a team, so there will be no blame at his door,’ he said, as reported by Chronicle Live.
‘We all have to take responsibility.
Everyone has made mistakes throughout the season but we just have to stick together and get as many points as we can.
‘ Newcastle are 16th in the Premier League table, a point clear of the bottom three.
The St James’ Park club are next in action on February 23 when they host rock-bottom Huddersfield Town.
