Newcastle vs Wolves match report
Goals from Cisse and Jonas not enough
Newcastle United are unable to finish off Wolves despite taking a two goal lead into half-time. Goals from Cisse and Jonas in the first half are neutralised by goals from Jarvis and Doyle in the second.

According to one of the commentators on my feed, this match was taking place at the ‘First Direct Arena’, which made me giggle.

Wolves kicked off and had their first chance in under a minute when Doyle went past Williamson but failed to to guide it into the far corner. Two minutes later Wolves had a free kick after a Williamson foul but all they could do with that was smash it into the wall. A lively first 5 or 6 minutes from Wolves but they hadn’t made it count, which was a mistake we weren’t about to make in the following 10 minutes or so.

The fun started in the sixth minute when Cabaye caught Berra in possession and passed to Ba who tried swiping the ball into the net with his right foot going behind his left. It was on target and produced a great save by Hennessey. However the ball eventually found its way out to Tiote who hammered it broadly in the direction of goal and Cisse managed to toe punt it past Hennessey. 1-0. (more…)
