Newcastle manager Steve Bruce speaking to BBC Match of the Day: "I was delighted the way we played in the first half and needed more of it in the second but for some reason, we didn't play in the second half. We needed to gain composure and a foothold in the game but we gave the ball away so many times and sat back too much.

"We forgot to take part in the second half. "We said we wanted to win the second half as well. Second half it was that horrible cliche of a game of two halves - if ever there was one."

On Sean Longstaff's red card: "I thought he was unlucky. I think he has played the ball and he isn't in control of his foot but where is his foot supposed to go? When players roll around like that afterwards I'm always a bit dubious."

On his side's scoring problems: "We've invested in strikers, in the second half they were feeding off scraps. We need to do better to give the players at the top end of the pitch chances."

Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo, also to BBC Match of the Day: "We performed better in the second half. Newcastle was organised and we had problems but in the second half, we were better and created so much. We combined well and I'm happy - the challenge is to do it in both halves."

On his side's busy schedule: "We are embracing the challenge. We have played 20 games, that is a lot of effort. There are no days off and so a lot of credit goes to the boys."

On losing Willy Boly this week through injury: "He's a big player and a big man and we will miss him, but it is something that can happen. He was doing a box in training and fell - it is sad that has happened."
