Nuno Espirito Santo praised the character of his Wolves players as they fought back to earn a 1-1 draw with Newcastle.

Wolves, who spent last week training in Marbella, were hunting a fourth straight top flight win for the first time since 1972, but it looked as though the night would end badly.

Isaac Hayden’s second-half opener had put the visitors in front but Willy Boly’s controversial injury-time header ensured that Wolves ended with a share of the points.

Wolves sit seventh, two points ahead of Watford.

They have now scored six injury time goals in all competitions this season and Nuno was pleased with their character.

‘Until the referee whistles we keep going.

We’re really pleased because it’s something we must keep on doing,’ he said.

‘It came and it brought some justice.

We have had a lot of moments like this, sometimes it give you the win, sometimes it doesn’t.

‘It’s not about the point, the story of the game could have been different as the first half was totally controlled.

‘What I’m disappointed with is to concede, we must be compact and we allowed Newcastle too much time to decide the final pass.’
