Nuno wants better first halves after Wolves' draw at Newcastle

Raul Jimenez scores Wolves' equaliser against Southampton from the penalty spot

Wolverhampton Wanderers' French defender Willy Boly will miss the Premier League clash at Newcastle United on Sunday after suffering a suspected ankle fracture in training.

After an impressive 2018-19 season, when they reached the semi-finals of the FA Cup and finished seventh in the Premier League on their return to the top-flight, Wolves took their time to get going this season.

A tiresome first half came alive when Jamaal Lascelles met a cross from Federico Fernandez with a thumping header to put the hosts ahead in the 37th minute.

That run includes back to back-back away wins in the Europa League, against Besiktas and Slovan Bratislava (as recently as Thursday night) and a quite brilliant counter attacking 2-0 win away at Manchester City.

Sky customers can add the Premier League and Football channels for factual £18 per thirty days or add all of the sports equipment to their deal for factual £23 per thirty days. But the boys want to compete and they do well, so I'm not disappointed at all. They do it very well. "You can not concede first - let's try to be the first team to hurt and try to control the game better".

The 25-year-old has made more clearances (48) than any other Newcastle player in the Premier League this season.

Bruce should retain the trio for the game against Wolves.

Newcastle's waves of first-half pressure nearly paid off when Miguel Almiron lashed a shot into the side-netting after outpacing Romain Saiss. The second half consisted of a reversal in roles.

Newcastle will hope to resolve themselves out of the relegation zone after they rep on Wolves at St James' Park.

'Obviously I'm pleased that I got a goal, but it would have been better if we got the three points.

What time is Newcastle v Wolves?
