Newcastle v Wolves: match preview


Late last week a giant banner was draped across an entrance to St James’ Park. In a clear message to Mike Ashley, it demanded that Newcastle’s owner “stop gambling with our club”. It follows the earlier warning – also via a banner outside the stadium – declaring: “Act late seal your fate.” No one need read very far between the lines to realise these are demands that Ashley sack Steve Bruce. After a run of 12 defeats in 16 games, Newcastle’s manager is under intense pressure and could do with victory against Wolves as his side embark on a potentially season-defining run of games also involving fixtures against West Brom, Aston Villa and Brighton.
