Newcastle were seconds away from victory before Wolves defender Wily Boly popped up in second-half stoppage time to snatch an equaliser.

Benitez said: "In England they don't understand the rules".

It was the second time Newcastle had conceded an injury time goal to Wolves after Matt Doherty's victor in December.

Benitez, for his part, demanded more protection from referees in a strongly-worded verdict on officiating standards in the English game. You can say many things like the 94 minutes, but it will not change what happened. We have had a lot of moments like this, sometimes it give you the win, sometimes it doesn't.

"The situation is to protect the goalkeeper, so you're supposed to protect the keeper".

Some might says that Wolves vs Newcastle is not a Monday Night Football fixture to set the pulse racing, but I always enjoy the atmos when Molineux is on TV and they have better music than most. We have been here for years and it's still very hard to explain that.

"It is a bad way to concede".

The Magpies moved above Cardiff and into 16th, but are only one point above the drop zone.

"I'm disappointed, and I was happy with the performance of the team", said Benitez.

The win was sealed in the third minute of time added on in the second half, with Jony firing past Aitor Fernández. The point leaves them 16th just a point clear off the bottom three.
