Midfielder Joao Moutinho believes Wolverhampton Wanderers were more than worthy of the point picked up in last night’s draw with Newcastle United.
BT Sport write that Moutinho was pleased with the way he and his team-mates performed at Molineux.
Wolves nicked a point in the 95th minute in controversial fashion, as Willy Boly collided with Magpies ‘keeper Martin Dubravka before sweeping the ball home.
The goal cancelled out Isaac Hayden’s earlier strike to keep Nuno Espirito Santo’s men 7th in the Premier League table with 12 matches to play.
Moutinho himself played the full 90 minutes of the match, continuing his record of featuring in every top-flight match since his £5m move from Monaco last summer.
On last night’s performance, the 32-year-old said:
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 game and we deserved that draw, but we need to continue to work, and improve, and win our games. 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. Newcastle are a good team. They do their job and they played well, but I think we played well, we created opportunities to score.
Next up for Wolves is a trip to Bristol City this weekend in the 5th round of the FA Cup, before travelling to AFC Bournemouth in the Premier League on February 23rd.
