Nuno Espirito Santo says Wolves deserved controversial equaliser against Newcastle

Nuno Espirito Santo refused to be drawn on Willy Boly's controversial equaliser but felt Wolves were deserving of their draw against Newcastle.
Wolves, who spent last week training in Marbella, were hunting a fourth-straight top-flight win for the first time since 1972 but settled for a dramatic point as Boly rose high above Martin Dubravka in the final minute of stoppage-time to snatch a point.
Newcastle protests for a foul by Boly on Dubravka were ignored by referee Graham Scott, with Nuno opting to steer clear of the controversy.
"In the last minute we started putting balls in the box and we got a moment we deserved," he told Sky Sports. "The draw put some justice in the game.
"I didn't see the images yet, but it's not my job, it's the referee's job to judge and if he didn't see anything the goal is good."
Wolves have now scored six injury-time goals in all competitions this season and the Portuguese manager was pleased with their character.
He added: "Until the referee whistles we keep going. We're really pleased because it's something we must keep on doing.
"We have had a lot of moments like this, sometimes it gives you the win, sometimes it doesn't."
Nuno felt Isaac Hayden's opener for Newcastle was a result of a collective failure by Wolves.
"It's not about the point, the story of the game could have been different as the first half was totally controlled," he said.
"What I'm disappointed with is to concede, we must be compact, and we allowed Newcastle too much time to decide the final pass."
