'Murphy deserved that!' 'Another point to paper over the cracks' - Newcastle United fans react as Jacob Murphy rescues point

Jacob Murphy rescued a point for Newcastle United away at Wolves with a clever free-kick late on.

Jiminez had put Wolves ahead with just ten minutes to go at Molineux but Murphy rescued a point late on.

Here’s the best of the NUFC reaction from Twitter:

Dean Buckle tweeted: “#jacobmurphy and #Almiron have been our best two today. #Hendrick much more comfortable in CM. If only Bruce can work out a way to keep us looking defensively tighter like today and actually offer a regular threat going forward we’d be a decent side #NUFC”

Pedro Neto of Wolverhampton Wanderers battles for possession with Jamaal Lascelles.

Scott tweeted: "Great goal, but all the commentator can do is blame the wall and the keeper. Why do they hate #nufc so much. It's so biased against Newcastle it's a joke.”

Kieran C tweeted: “I’m happy for Murphy, but I honestly this will take away from the criticism Bruce deserves because it’ll be seen by pundits as a good away point. He doesn’t deserve that. This has been shocking. Riding his luck yet again.”

Duzman tweeted: “Murphy deserves that: only player who’s actively played well today. But how many times are we going to get away with it like this? #NUFC”

Steven Watson tweeted: “Well done Murphy lad, last time I saw a free kick like that.. it was a Scott Sellers special #nufc”

Darren Smithson added: “Fair play best player for us - JM deserved that #NUFC”

Ryan May tweeted: “Good to see Murphy get a goal thought he was excellent today, another point to paper over the cracks #NUFC”

David Mcgivern added: “The only decent thing about that #NUFC performance was not driving to Wolverhampton to watch it.”
