Wolves’ Wily Boly denies Newcastle valuable win deep into stoppage time

Rafael Benítez must hate it when the fourth official holds up the board for added time against Wolves. Just as Matt Doherty had headed a winner at St James’ Park in the 94th minute in December, so Newcastle were again undone by a last-gasp goal as Will…

Anthony Knockaert double puts Brighton on threshold of promotion

Anthony Knockaert’s two goals set up Brighton with the opportunity to host their own promotion party at home on Monday. The Championship’s player of the year has so often provided Chris Hughton’s slick team with the penetration to go with their hard work and so it proved at Molineux on Friday as Brighton dismissed any disappointment at Huddersfield, beating Preston, delaying their elevation to the Premier League.

Brighton will seal a return to the elite of English football for the first time in 34 years should they beat Wigan Athletic on Monday and Huddersfield then fail to win at Derby County in the later kick-off. Let’s face it, promotion is a formality for Brighton now and, after three play-off disappointments in the past four years, few can claim they do not deserve it. They are 12 points clear of third place.

On a night that will be remembered for the blizzard that made the FA Cup’s pink ball a necessity and not just a fashion accessory, Fulham scored eight times, which included winning the shootout triggered by Ross McCormack’s 120th-minute penalty, to end a barren run of four games stretching back to before Christmas. A trip to Sunderland awaits.

David Edwards had stolen from under a blanket of snow to score what looked like the winning goal, his second of the night, as Wolverhampton Wanderers paid tribute to Sir Jack Hayward, the club’s life president, who died on Tuesday aged 91. But when McCormack’s free-kick was handled – those peering through the storm reckoned it was by Lee Evans in the defensive wall – the former Leeds United striker converted to take the game into the shootout in which all five Fulham takers scored.
