Wolves boss Bruno Lage believes Newcastle defender Fabian Schar should have been sent off for Pedro Neto tackle (Video)

Allan Saint-Maximin rescued a point for Newcastle with a beautiful 90th-minute volley at the Molineux on Sunday after his team trailed to equally good goal from Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Ruben Neves for a large part of the game.

Wolves did score a second goal through Raul Jimenez nine minutes before, but at the request of VAR official Lee Mason, referee Peter Bankes ruled it out for a foul by Pedro Neto on Ryan Fraser in the buildup.

But Wolves manager Bruno Lage believes the defining moment of the match was in the 46th minute, when Bankes and Mason decided between them not to send off Fabian Schar for a potentially dangerous tackle on Neto.

To be fair to the Swiss defender, it looked reckless but unintentional. Neto wasn’t injured and the yellow card seemed the right call.
