Lascelles, Neves share headers as Newcastle, Wolves extend draw trend

Ruben Neves Newcastle v Wolves February 2021

Jamaal Lascelles and Ruben Neves exchanged headers as Newcastle and Wolves shared a 1-1 draw for the fifth time in as many competitive meetings.

The Magpies looked especially lively in the first half, with Miguel Almiron hitting the post after 12 minutes.

Allan Saint-Maximin also put in another strong performance and finished off a fantastic move, which started when his quick feet helped him beat two defenders.

However, the offside flag went up to deny which would have been a fantastic goal.

Steve Bruce‘s men did get the advantage in the second half, when Lascelles headed in Ryan Fraser’s cross.

But up the other end, Neves guided a header of his own into the left corner.

As in the last four competitive games between these two teams, though, the score finished 1-1.
