Rafa Benitez reacts to Newcastle's draw with Wolves

Newcastle United host bottom-of-the-table Huddersfield Town at St James’ Park on Saturday.

The Magpies conceded a last-minute goal to Wolves last time out, costing them two points at Molineux.

Rafa Benitez’s men have been on a training camp in Alicante since then, and come into this crucial part of the season a point above the drop zone.

Huddersfield are in dire straits, and are 14 points off their opponents and safety following a run of 13 games without a win.

Newcastle won the reverse fixture via a solo Salomon Rondon goal.
