Newcastle United actually played really well when drawing 1-1 at Watford last weekend, with the Magpies left scratching their head as to how they only landed a point after creating an enormous number of chances at Vicarage Road. They will now head to Molineux in a bid to land their first victory of the season.

However, Steve Bruce’s side might not be able to create chances as easily against a disciplined Wolves team who are bidding to secure their first victory of the campaign at Molineux, with Bruno Lage’s team having already claimed wins away to Watford and Southampton.

There was plenty to like about the defensive display at St Mary’s, with Jose Sa having been outstanding between the sticks in that game, while Conor Coady, Roman Saiss and Max Kilman put up a defensive rearguard. Moreover, Raul Jimenez scored the winning goal after fashioning a chance from nothing against the Saints.

Newcastle are capable of getting a point from this encounter although the draw is a more attractive option than a win to either side. This is likely to be low-scoring and that brings the goalless draw and 1-1 draw into sharper focus.
