    • - Don't forget you can watch highlights of this match, along with every Premier League game, from 00:01 on Monday morning (UK only).
    • 90+4' The full-time whistle goes at Molineux, and Newcastle United have won 2-1 to go third in the Premier League table, with Wolves feeling aggrieved over a penalty appeal and a disallowed goal! It was a dramatic end to the match, but Newcastle remain unbeaten. Thanks for joining us.
    • 90+2' Replays suggest that the ball was probably not out of play, and that goal should have stood. What drama late on!
    • 90+1' GOAL DISALLOWED! Jarvis heads a high ball back across the Newcastle box for Doyle to turn the ball into the net at the second time of asking, and the referee's assistant believes that the ball was out of play. It was very marginal!
    • 89' Danny Guthrie comes on to replace Cabaye, who receives a deserved standing ovation.
    • 87' GOAL!!!! Hammil floats over a delightful delivery which Fletcher heads home powerfully to finally beat Krul and lift the gloom! Can they grab an equaliser?
    • 85' Wolves continue to press forward relentlessly, and Newcastle are forced onto the back foot.
    • 83' Taylor makes another stunning block in the Newcastle box as he throws his body at the ball once more.
    • 81' The Wolves fans are beginning to stream out of the exits now, and the hosts do not look like getting back into this late on.
    • 79' Johnson goes down clutching his thigh as McCarthy looks on in frustration, and the defender is limping pretty heavily.
    • 77' Taylor and Coloccini have looked very impressive today, and they combine to clear the danger once more.
    • 76' Johnson does superbly to turn a loose ball across the Newcastle six-yard box, but none of his team-mates anticipate the delivery!
    • 75' O'Hara is battling away furiously for the ball in midfield, but he simply cannot muster up any inspiration for his side.
    • 73' Gutierrez cannot help Krul out as the Dutchman slices a clearance out of play rather needlessly, but he has had a great game.
    • 71' Jarvis continues to make good progress for Wolves, but the hosts lack a cutting edge and cannot find a way through.
    • 69' Demba Ba, the first goalscorer, comes off and is replaced by Peter Lovenkrands as he gets a break.
    • 67' Krul makes a quite stunning double save to deny Fletcher, then Doyle as the Dutchman once again makes a distinguished contribution for the Magpies, to the disbelief of the hosts!
    • 65' Ba should score! Best battles away superbly before the ball breaks loose for Ba with just the keeper to beat, but he drags his shot wide!
    • 63' Senator Hector predicts this match will end in a draw, but Matty Jarvis drifts over an awful cross to suggest that is unlikely at this stage.
    • 62' McCarthy has made a double change, but it is still Newcastle who keep the ball more comfortably.
    • 61' Demba Ba goes down in a crumpled heap on halfway, and this looks pretty painful for the forward.
    • 59' Fletcher holds the ball up superbly on the edge of the penalty area, before O'Hara drags a poor shot wide as he charges on to it.
    • 58' It's a double change as Adlene Guedioura and Adam Hammill come on, and the crowd absolutely love that! Henry and Hunt make way.
    • 57' Krul makes a very fine catch to claim a looping delivery from O'Hara cleanly, and that's good keeping.
    • 56' McCarthy is preparing to make a few subs now, and the crowd respond very enthusiastically!
    • 55' Gutierrez is brimming with confidence, and he storms down the left and gets over a testing cross to no one in particular.
    • 53' David Jones has got in touch via Twitter to say "If Wolves get 2 goals back, I'll eat my hat!". Paul Cooke, meanwhile, notes that Newcastle are flying this season and cannot see Wolves getting back into it either... Anyone disagree? Get in touch...
    • 52' Gutierrez tugs Stearman to the ground very cynically, and he is booked. Ridiculous - no complaints there!
    • 51' Tiote hauls down Jarvis, and Wolves can take stock on halfway as they look to press forward.
    • 49' Best holds the ball up well deep inside the Wolves half, and Newcastle build from a good position.
    • 47' Wolves win a corner which O'Hara whips over into the box, but Jarvis can only head wide.
    • 46' The second half is underway, and neither manager deems it necessary to make any changes just yet.
    • 45+2' The half-time whistle goes at Molineux, and Wolves trail Newcastle 2-0 after goals from Demba Ba and Jonas Gutierrez, but the hosts are rightly aggrieved that they were not awarded a penalty late on. Can you see Wolves coming back from this deficit? Let me know on Twitter!
    • 45+1' A long ball upfield from Hennessey drifts straight out of play, and that will be the last action of this half-time.
    • 45' Jarvis goes down inside the Newcastle box as Simpson attempts to pull out of a challenge, but referee Halsey says no. He was right on this occasion!
    • 44' McCarthy is not at all impressed with the referee as he feels his side should have been awarded a penalty.
    • 43' Wolves continue to press forward with Newcastle boxed into their own half, only for Fletcher to be penalised for obstruction.
    • 42' Ba and Johnson square up to each other off the ball, and this match threatens to get a bit nasty now.
    • 40' Henry was cautioned after that goal was scored, and that was for a late lunge on Tiote.
    • 38' GOAL!!!!! GUTIERREZ NETS NEWCASTLE'S SECOND! The Argentine picks up the ball down the left, and cuts incisively inside before driving a low shot beyond Hennessey and into the far corner of the net! It's 2-0, and Henry was at fault for giving the ball away there.
    • 37' Doyle combines effectively with Jarvis, but he drags his shot wide from the edge of the Newcastle box.
    • 36' Ba is marshalled well by Johnson, with the forward ending his powerful run with a speculative shot wide.
    • 35' O'Hara twists and turns on the edge of the Newcastle box, but he is unable to hit the target with his curled effort.
    • 34' Simpson does well to track the run of Doyle down the Wolves left, and he makes a fine clearance.
    • 33' The play continues to lurch from one end to the other with both sides anxious to press forward in search of a goal.
    • 31' It's another wonderful save from Hennessey, who somehow blocks Gutierrez's close-range shot as a reflex reaction, and he keeps Wolves in this!
    • 30' What a save from Hennessey! The keeper dives low to his right to parry wide as Tiote unleashes a rasping drive on target!
    • 29' It's an incredibly open encounter as both sides press forward in fearless fashion.
    • 28' O'Hara heads clear as Wolves are again boxed in, and Newcastle are playing very well.
    • 27' Best fouls Johnson, and Wolves have the opportunity to alleviate the pressure from their goal.
    • 25' Tiote spreads the ball wide out to Simpson superbly, but the move peters out as Ward intervenes.
    • 24' McCarthy is getting very frustrated with his defence for not stepping up quickly enough, and Ba is causing problems.
    • 23' Jarvis concedes another corner as Newcastle have Wolves boxed in and under pressure.
    • 22' Hennessey races out once more to gather a loose ball, and he is obviously having a few issues with the sun!
    • 21' Newcastle win a corner out on the right once more, and Best stands in front of Hennessey.
    • 20' Hennessey hammers a long ball up to Hunt before Doyle sees his deflected shot brilliantly saved by Krul with his legs with Jarvis unable to convert from the follow up!
    • 19' The Newcastle fans are in full voice now as their side keep the ball through Simpson out on the right.
    • 17' GOAL!!!!! DEMBA BA IS ON TARGET AGAIN! After having netted a hat-trick last week against Blackburn, Ba powers a header into the net from Cabaye's cross and Newcastle are in front!
    • 16' Simpson and Best combine, before Obertan wins a corner for the visitors with a rampaging run.
    • 15' Stearman does very well indeed to track the run of Ba all the way and he even has the poise to steady himself and clear.
    • 14' McCarthy is suddenly very animated as he barks orders at his players, but they keep possession and look comfortable on the ball.
    • 13' Coloccini unfurls a raking diagonal pass out to Gutierrez, but Stearman stands his ground well to clear.
    • 11' Krul is swiftly off his line to clear upfield after a through ball from Henry almost puts in Doyle!
    • 10' Jarvis drifts over a probing delivery from the right flank, but Doyle can only volley rather tamely straight at Krul.
    • 9' Ba scampers down the left at pace, but his cut back fails to pick out Best inside the box.
    • 7' O'Hara causes further havoc with a delightful delivery to pick out Fletcher at the back post, but he heads wide.
    • 6' Krul lays the ball out to Coloccini as Newcastle enjoy a good spell on the ball in their own half.
    • 5' Wolves build from deep as the hosts ensure that Newcastle have to battle extremely hard for possession.
    • 3' Krul launches a long ball upfield, but Demba Ba is caught offside and stoped in his tracks.
    • 2' What a save from Krul! O'Hara whips over a brilliant delivery towards the far post from a free kick 25 yards out, and it evades everyone in the box with Krul forced to make a low diving fingertip save!
    • 1' The first half is underway at Molineux, and it is a gloriously sunny day in the Black Country!
    • 14:55 Right, the players are out on the field, and the usual anthems blare out around Molineux to signal that we are all set for kick off...
    • 14:50 Right, it's time for you to post your pre-match predictions! What do you think the result will be, and who will be on target? Get in touch and let me know!
    • 14:45 Newcastle have won three and drawn three this season, with Alan Pardew's side unbeaten after six games in fifth place on 12 points after Liverpool's win over Everton in the lunchtime kick-off. Premier League table
    • 14:40 Newcastle boss Alan Pardew is hoping Jonas Gutierrez's decision to sign a new long-term contract will persuade skipper Fabricio Coloccini to do the same. The 28-year-old Argentinian midfielder this week put pen to paper on a four-year deal and Pardew, who had hoped to persuade Kevin Nolan, Jose Enrique and Joey Barton to stay on Tyneside this summer, is keeping his fingers crossed that compatriot Coloccini will follow suit. The story in full
    • 14:35 Wolves picked up seven points from the opening three games and twice briefly held top position. But three successive defeats, including an inept performance in the 3-0 home reversal against QPR, have seen them slip back into mid-table ahead of today's clash.
    • 14:30 Mick McCarthy believes persuading striker Kevin Doyle to sign a new contract reinforces his belief that Wolves are not a selling club. Doyle put pen to paper on a new four-year contract to end constant speculation about his future. McCarthy revealed summer capture and new skipper Roger Johnson had asked if Wolves would sell their best players - including Doyle and winger Matt Jarvis - before moving from Birmingham.

    • 14:25 THE TEAMS ARE IN! Wolverhampton: Hennessey, Stearman, Johnson, Berra, Ward, Hunt, Henry, O'Hara, Jarvis, Doyle, Fletcher. Subs: De Vries, Edwards, Vokes, Hammill, Zubar, Doherty, Guedioura /// Newcastle: Krul, Simpson, Steven Taylor, Coloccini, Ryan Taylor, Obertan, Cabaye, Tiote, Gutierrez, Best, Ba. Subs: Elliot, Santon, Guthrie, Ben Arfa, Lovenkrands, Marveaux, Sammy Ameobi
    • 14:20 Mick McCarthy has said: "You can't say if you've lost three on the bounce, that there's no negative reaction. It would be crazy to ask anybody to believe otherwise but it's the amount of it (negative reaction) that's important. There's disappointment and frustration and I guess a bit of anger between all of us not at each other, but with themselves, for not performing as well as we could."
    • 14:15 Alan Pardew has said: "Of course Colo (Fabricio Coloccini) is on the agenda, there is no doubt about that. He's had a terrific start as captain. We have a different look to the team and he is part of that, and securing Jonas will only help in the process of trying to secure Coloccini."
    • 14:10 TEAM NEWS: Defender Richard Stearman is Wolves' major new fitness doubt. Stearman suffered a toe injury during the 2-1 defeat against Liverpool at Anfield and was substituted at half-time. If he is ruled out, 19-year-old Matt Doherty will start against the Magpies. Striker Steven Fletcher has recovered from the groin problem which restricted him to a second-half substitute's role against the Reds. Jody Craddock, Ronald Zubar, Kevin Foley and Sylvan Ebanks-Blake are out.
    • 14:05 Davide Santon will be included in the Newcastle squad for the first time for the trip to Wolves. The 20-year-old Italian played 90 minutes for the reserves in midweek after having fluid drained from his knee and could make his senior debut at Molineux. However, striker Shola Ameobi will miss out once again with a shoulder injury, while Alan Smith (hamstring) and Mike Williamson (broken arm) remain on the sidelines.
    • 14:00 Newcastle United travel to Molineux to take on Mick McCarthy's Wolverhampton Wanderers with the Magpies in a lofty position of fourth in the Premier League.
