Chris Wood scored his first home goal for Newcastle United to lift them 10 points clear of the relegation zone with a 1-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Wood thought he had put Newcastle in front after 23 minutes but his close-range finish from Bruno Guimaraes' centre was overturned following a VAR review for an offside in the build-up.
Newcastle continued to look the more threatening side but were wasteful with their finishing, as Allan Saint-Maximin missed two good chances after the break.
But their pressure told with 18 minutes left as Wood scored from the penalty spot after being brought down by Wolves goalkeeper Jose Sa.
That goal seemed to jolt Wolves into life and Newcastle needed Martin Dubravka to make a brilliant late save from Fabio Silva with what was the visitors' first shot on target.
A first victory in four matches moves Newcastle to 14th on 34 points.
Wolves miss the chance to rise to sixth as they stay in eighth, on 49 points, two behind Manchester United, having played two more matches.
