GOAL: Wolves take the lead through Jiminez

It has been coming…and Wolves lead. Just ten minutes to go here, Jiminez has handed Wolves the lead. Will we see a late response? 

Double change for Newcastle United as ASM and Fraser depart

A double change for NUFC

No changes at the break and still goalless five minutes into the second half

No changes at the break, NUFC have plenty of attacking options on the pitch and will be hoping they can combine to good effect this half. Wilson was isolated at times in the first half. 

Half-time verdict from our NUFC writer Miles Starforth

Newcastle had a couple of let-offs before the break, but they also threatened a few times on the counter-attack. The formation has been fluid at times, and Almiron's been all over the pitch chasing and tracking. Hopefully, he can be more of an influence in Wolves' half in the second half. Saint-Maximin yet to come into his own in the free role he's been given.

Peep-peep. Goalless at the break.

Well, it’s not quite been a classic has it? It’s goalless at the break and you think NUFC will probably take that given how Wolves started the game. Newcastle have grown into it, big 45 to come.
