Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Joao Moutinho has stressed that his side deserved at least a point from Monday night's Premier League home game against Newcastle United, which finished as a 1-1 draw right at the death.

Despite dominating proceedings in the first half at Molineux and creating numerous chances in the second, they appeared unable to break down the Magpies, who led 1-0 thanks to Isaac Hayden's goal shortly before the hour.

 

 

However, Willy Boly popped up in the 95th minute of the match to net a late equaliser, the Wolves defender rising above Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka to slam a header into the back of the net, cue euphoria amongst the home contingent.

Moutinho, who put in another impressive performance for his side - Whoscored rates him as 7.23, the second-highest Wolves player rating for Wolves in the game behind Boly - thinks the hosts fully deserved a result and should have got more goals prior to their equaliser.

"It was a dramatic end, but we deserve a point because we played a good match, we controlled the game and we created opportunities," the Portuguese told the official Wolves website.

"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."

Although Wolves made hard work of their point, the big picture at Wolves is currently incredibly positive, the team flying high in the Premier League table and hoping for a fruitful FA Cup run.

Following Moutinho's comments, some Wanderers fans took to Twitter and expressed their delight at seeing the talented player turning out in the old gold:
