Moutinho: Wolves' fighting spirit earnt point

Joao Moutinho has praised the fighting spirit within the Wolves camp as the side fought back to claim a deserved point in the 95th minute of the game against Newcastle United.

Despite dominating for much of the game, Wolves had to wait until Willy Boly’s header in the dying seconds to steal a point away from the Magpies.

But the 32-year-old believes Wolves fully deserved to get a result at Molineux and should have scored several other goals at points throughout the match.

On claiming a point against Newcastle

“It was a dramatic end, but we deserve a point because we played a good match, we controlled the game and we created opportunities.

“They scored in the second half when we made a mistake and after that they defended very well, but we tried everything to score and got it in the last minute, but I think we deserved it.

“Newcastle are a good team. They do their job and they played well, but I think we played well, we created opportunities to score.”

On Boly’s equalising goal

“I saw a goal. The ref didn’t whistle, but the most important thing is that we fought until the end and we did everything we could to score. We deserved this draw.”

On Wolves scoring late

“We fight until the end; we fight until the ref’s whistle. I think we created opportunities to score one, two or three goals, but it didn’t happen.

“We continued to try it in the last minute because we try it all the game and we deserved that draw, but we need to continue to work, and improve, and win our games.”
