Back in Tyne: Five wonderful wins at Wolves

Ahead of Newcastle United's Premier League clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday afternoon (kick-off 3pm BST), we take a look at some of the Magpies' most memorable wins over Wolves...

Mitro's on fire! (2016/17)

The Magpies moved back to the top of the Championship table with a vital 1-0 victory at Molineux, courtesy of Aleksandar Mitrovic's match winner.

United had dropped into second following Brighton's victory earlier in the day but the Serbian's close-range strike on the stroke of half time sent Rafa Benítez's men one point clear of Albion.

The victory was crucial towards eventually lifting the Championship trophy, with Newcastle winning the league title on the final day of the season, edging the Seagulls by a single point.

Demba and Jonás send United into third (2011/12)

Newcastle achieved their best start to a season since 1994 as first-half strikes from Demba Ba and Jonás Gutiérrez sent the Magpies into the top four of the Premier League.

Ba, who had netted a hat-trick in United's previous league game against Blackburn Rovers, continued his impressive goalscoring form with an early header before Gutiérrez's tremendous solo finish, advancing past four challenges before firing a low strike into the far right-hand corner, doubled Newcastle's lead.

Wolves set up a grandstand finish through Steven Fletcher's late strike, but the visitors dug deep for maximum points. United went unbeaten in their opening 11 Premier League matches as Alan Pardew's side eventually finished in fifth place, qualifying for the Europa League.

Great Scott! (1989/90)

Kevin Scott netted the only goal of the game as the Magpies earned an important 1-0 victory during a sparkling run of victories for United.

With Newcastle chasing promotion to the old First Division, the defender's goal on the half-hour mark gave Jim Smith's side a fifth successive league win on their way to qualifying for the play-offs, before suffering an agonising semi-final defeat to local rivals Sunderland.

Robledo delivers double blow (1950/51)

Chilean forward George Robledo netted the match winner as United followed up an FA Cup semi-final replay win over Wolves with a tight 1-0 victory in the First Division.

One half of the famous Robledo brothers along with sibling Ted, the South American was the star of the show at Molineux as United went on to finish fourth in a gruelling 42-game season before lifting the 1951 FA Cup, their first of three trophies during a dominant spell in the 1950s.

All White on the night (1958/59)

Len White's brace sealed an impressive 3-1 victory over the 1959 First Division winners - a scoreline which has remained United's biggest away win over Wolves.

The league title-holders featured the likes of England international pair, Billy Wright and Ron Flowers, but United were too strong on the day as White's double - along with Arthur Bottom's strike - secured maximum points.

White's prolific form during a ten-year spell on Tyneside saw the forward notch 153 goals for United, placing the striker as the third highest goalscorer in the club's history.
