Carroll earns Toon point

28 August 2010 06:00
Andy Carroll took his goal tally to four in the last two games to rescue a deserved point for Newcastle in an incident-packed Barclays Premier League 1-1 draw with Wolves at Molineux. Carroll followed up his hat-trick against Aston Villa by cancelling out Sylvan Ebanks-Blake's second goal of the campaign - as many as he managed in the whole of last season. Newcastle had enough opportunities to secure a second win of the season, but Wolves maintained their unbeaten start. Wolves went ahead on the brink of half-time through Ebanks-Blake's second goal in two games. Jelle Van Damme's floated centre was brought down by the striker and he then hammered a low drive past Harper. Ronald Zubar was cautioned after a challenge on Jonas Gutierrez and, from the free-kick, Carroll brought Newcastle level. Joey Barton's inswinging centre picked out Carroll, whose powerful header flew past Hahnemann for his fourth goal in the last two games.
