Dubravka's brilliance saved Mags.

NEWCASTLE United 'didn't want to go' it against Wolves and had Martin Dubravka to thank for staying in the game, according to Nuno Espirito Santo.

The injury-ravaged Magpies broke the deadlock on seven minutes through Miguel Almiron. However, the visitors were only in front for a few minutes after Leander Dendoncker capitalised on some poor defending to get on the end of Joao Moutinho's whipped corner.

Nuno said: "Some [things] I think we should improve, the final touch, the delivery of the ball but it was difficult because Newcastle didn't want to go for the game, reducing space, wellorganised, tight. We struggled." Newcastle only had one shot on target on Saturday and it was Wolves who had the best chances and majority of possession.

Dubravka somehow kept out a Raul Jimenez effort from two yards in the first half and then made another great save to deny Neto after the break.

Nuno added: "Newcastle were organised - it was difficult to find the lines and spaces - but we tried really hard until the end. Newcastle's goalkeeper played a fantastic game today that allowed them to stay in the game."
