Wolverhampton Wanderers captain Conor Coady has spoken out about his side's innate never-say-die attitude which would have made it "a crime" had they not claimed something from Monday night's Premier League meeting with Newcastle United.

Despite dominating proceedings in the first half at Molineux and creating numerous chances in the second, Nuno Espirito Santo's charges were simply unable to break down the Magpies - who led 1-0 thanks to Isaac Hayden's goal shortly before the hour - for most of the game.

 

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 and caused euphoria in the home dugout and stands.

According to The Mirror, Boly's contribution, which helped Wolves to a 1-1 draw, was the sixth goal scored by the West Midlanders after 90 minutes this term in all competitions, and the 14th time they have netted in the 80th minute or later this season.

"You have to have that willingness and that fight to get back in the game and get a point or a win," Coady - who has played every minute of every Premier League this term - told The Mirror. "I don’t think you can teach or learn that kind of thing. It is the character within the group and we know players will fight until the end to get a point or a win and we have to keep going until the end. We never give up.

“It would have been a crime if we never came away with something. You get to that point where you think it is not going to be your night. But we have players in that dressing room who never give up and we have shown that this year. It is something we like to have in our locker."

Up next for Wolves is a switch of focus to the FA Cup, in which they travel to Championship high-flyers Bristol City hoping to seal a place in the last eight of the illustrious competition.
