Newcastle United are close to securing their place in the Premier League- with seven games remaining. After having had the worst start in their Premier League history, this was an inconceivable situation back in December when they were looking down the barrel of the Championship.
Chris Wood’s penalty concluded a tense encounter on Tyneside following a hard-fought but well-deserved victory against a very excellent Wolverhampton Wanderers. United now have 34 points after beating Wolverhampton Wanderers. Despite the fact that Ryan Fraser limped off with an injury, this was a game that didn’t need to be beautiful since a victory on Easter Sunday would virtually seal Newcastle’s playoff spot for the second consecutive season.
After a grueling night of labor, United came out with their heads held high and went about their job with determination.
