Newcastle United are now on the verge of Premier League survival after tonight’s 1-0 win over Wolves. Chris Wood was the hero for the Magpies by scoring his first home goal since leaving the penalty spot in January.
And it was Wood who had the chance to score from 12 yards as he fell to a challenge from Jose Sa after a drive-thru run and a through ball from Joelinton. The 30-year-old thought he had broken his duck from St. James’ Park in the first half, but his close-range effort was ruled out for offside by VAR earlier in the move.
Newcastle is now 14 years old and in the table and above all, have widened a gap of 10 points with the last three. Here’s how Newcastle supporters reacted to the result.

@MagpieMessages: “Absolutely huge three points. It’s also the first time we’ve beaten a top 10 team this season.
@BrandonYorkVP: “Massive result with the events around the bottom of the table. I feel really confident in the chances of survival now!”
@CarlDonaldson_: “Nothing better than a win on Friday night. Bruno is a player. What a job Eddie Howe has done. TOON TOON.”
@agbnufc_: “Absolutely huge three points, some momentum for the next few home games. Bruno has world-class potential! There’s no way Everton/Burnley will reach 34 points.
@DL5872: “I can’t believe I’m saying this but IMO MOTM Almiron. Although Bruno and J7 are our midfielder of the future, neither one stops running.
@hrcrtrvl360: “Excellent team performance despite the waste of Saint Maximin. Bruno GMOTM. Will be surprised if he loses his place to Willock. Big win. Good job guys !
@Rickardo_nufc: “Huge result! Bruno my man of the match but credit to Wood for his goal and huge work rate. ASM needs to work on his finishing, it should have been two or three, but ASM was a good outlet when sitting deep.
@CTNaturel: “Fantastic win, still unbeaten at home in 2022 and that’s us safe, no way to go down now.”
@asm_10: “Bruno is just a different sauce, honestly the man can do anything.”
@KurdishGeordie: “A great victory. Now we have to fight for every point until we are officially safe, a few more wins will keep us safe.
