Newcastle were able to overcome adversity and get a well-deserved point at Wolves. The early injuries to Paul Dummett and Dwight Gayle disrupted Newcastle’s gameplan, but the lads put in a gutsy performance to secure a result.
While Newcastle had many players who battled and were resilient, Saturday was about two Magpies. They are Martin Dubravka and Miguel Almiron.
Both were far and away Newcastle top players on the day. That is represented in the poll for the Man of the Match.
Miguel Almiron got Newcastle an early lead with his third goal of the season. It was another beautiful finish for the man who’s now our second top scorer behind Jonjo Shelvey, who has five.
Not only was Miguel our only real threat going forward, but he was also our most tenacious defender as well. The Paraguayan put in a complete performance filled with passion for the shirt.
However, Miguel did not win his second Man of the Match poll, though he came close. That distinction goes to Martin Dubravka who has won the best player poll for a seventh time this season.
Dubravka made two world-class saves to keep the score level and save Newcastle a point. He rebounded from two straight matches against Wolves in which an error cost Newcastle a possible win.
Out of the 2147 total votes, Martin collected 1112 for 52%. Miguel came close and received 932 votes for 43%. Young Matty Longstaff came in a distant third with 27 votes.
