"MAXIMUM EFFORT FROM MAXI"
A brilliant 90th minute piledriver volley from Saint Maximin (from a skyed clearance from a Wolves defender) from ootside the box, earned a well deserved point for NUFC to keep wor unbeaten run from the start of the season gannin! (5 games includin' Leegue Cup!)
With key players like Callum Wilson and Bruno missin through injury (and record signing Alexander ineligible coz hiz work permit hadn't came through in time), we struggled in the forst half and went behind in the 38th minute from a fierce shot from Neves and went in 1-0 doon at the break!
We played better in 2nd period and despite havin most of the play(64%), shots (21)and corners(13), we couldn't find the back of the net!
We thought we'd lost it in the 80th minute when Wolves went 2-0 UP! BUT! sub Ryan Fraser woz fouled near the halfway line in front of the Toon fans and VAR rightly disallowed the goal to loud cheers from the 3,000 who had travelled doon from Tyneside and beyond!
And then the moment of the game in the 90th minute! (See above!---SEE ABOVE!!!)
Attendance: 31,311 (3,000 Toon fans)
PS: Before the game we had loads of problems when wor train unexpectedly torminated at Crewe to leave us stranded! We had nee choice but to get 2 taxis to Wolverhampton, which cost an extra £200 between 8 of us!(£25 each!)
We had travelled the day before the match and stopped in Stockport
On arrival in Wolverhampton (by taxi of course!) we made for The Great Western boozer near the train station!
After the match we caught a train to Manchester Piccadilly (aye they were actually runnin by this time!)
*Another train to York and then another train to 'The Central' to complete another hectic away trip!
(The Central=Newcasil Central train station)
