Wolverhampton Wanderers and Newcastle United head into Saturday’s Premier League fixture at Molineux having suffered successive defeats.
While the West Midlands outfit have lost back-to-back league games against Liverpool and Watford respectively,
the Magpies have gone three games without registering one point.
There was agony at Molineux when Willy Boly’s stoppage-time equaliser sparked an on field bust-up between Jamaal Lascelles and Martin Dubravka back in March.
Newcastle also chucked the lead away reception to Wolves this season to drop another two points.
For all that, given United’s recent problems most Geordie fans would accept some extent this weekend against a Wolves side
who genuinely believe they could push for a Champions League place this term.
Bruce’s team were booed off after their second-half performance led to a 1-1 draw being recorded at Spotland,
a result which occurred after nine goals were conceded in matches against Man United, Everton and Leicester City respectively.
Those setbacks have contributed to Newcastle dropping to within five points of the relegation zone,
putting Bruce struggling to urge back to winning ways and ease any pressure on keeping his job at St James’ Park within the longer term .

Wolves vs Newcastle United Team News
Having made changes for the game with Man United, Nuno will revert back to his tried-and-trusted team for Saturday’s game.
The one alteration to his usual lineup is perhaps getting to be Pedro Neto for Diogo Jota, who has been suffering with a thigh problem.
While sort of Newcastle players are closing in on a return, Bruce could have as many as a dozen players absent for the trip to Molineux.
Given their potential shortage at the rear , Isaac Hayden could deputise within the centre,
leaving Sean Longstaff and Matty Longstaff to feature within the center of the pitch.
Miguel Almiron and Andy Carroll hope to be back in contention after recent injuries,
but Jonjo Shelvey and Allan Saint-Maximin remain sidelined.
Wolves remain without Diogo Jota thanks to the dead leg he sustained against Watford on New Year’s Day Day Day.
Patrick Cutrone appears set to hitch Fiorentina, but Morgan Gibbs-White is finally available after a back problem.
Newcastle’s injury problems are easing, with Ciaran Clark,
Paul Dummett, Jetro Willems, Andy Carroll, Miguel Almiron and Dwight Gayle all fit again.
However, Ki Sung-Yueng, Yoshi Muto and DeAndre Yedlin are all nursing knocks and may be assessed.
