Wolves’ mini Premier League revival has continued at pace this weekend as Bruno Lage’s side clinched a 2-1 win at home to Newcastle.
Lage now heads into the international break with his first back-to-back wins at the club but the pressure climbs on Steve Bruce as the Magpies stay winless this season.
The home side were full of confidence from the start at Molineux and the razor sharp Hwang Hee-chan raced on Raul Jimenez’s through ball to bury them in front.
And the South Korean looked to be the key man from there as his cut back was fired against the crossbar by Trincao.
But with Wolves wasting their chances before the break, Newcastle hit back with an equaliser, as Irish international Jeff Hendrick swerved one past Jose Sa.
That reply did give the Magpies a boost after the break, as an alert Sa kept out Allan Saint-Maximin, but in the end it was a piece of Wolves magic that eventually won it.
Jimenez’s turn to three Newcastle players out of the game in midfield and Hwang strode on past Federico Fernandez to bury the winner.
Full Time from Molineux it’s Wolves 2-1 Newcastle
