Newcastle United goalkeeper Martin Dubravka produced another excellent performance in the Magpies’ 1-1 draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday night. The Slovakian is already a firm fan favourite on Tyneside, but his standing in the fans’ eyes may have soared to new heights after this showing. He made a number of crucial saves throughout the game to keep Wolves out until Willy Boly’s late equaliser. He is a remarkable shot-stopper, there’s no doubt about that. He made a major error against Tottenham Hotspur recently, but that happens to the best keepers. The impressive thing was how he bounced back from that mistake at Molineux. It didn’t seem to figure in his mind at all on Monday, he was nearly faultless. There has not been such a consistent, quality stopper at St James’ Park since Shay Given’s heyday. Dubravka’s got a long way to go until he’s at the Irishman’s level, but performances like the one against Wolves are only going to endear him more to the Magpies faithful.

Give Dubravka a pay rise. Outstanding so far tonight.

Dubravka is utter class, not that he had to but already made up for that spurs goal last week

Uninspiring so far, Dubravka is the best player on the pitch. Bring on Almiron.

Putting this out there Dubravka is one of the greatest signings #NUFC have ever made!

Unlucky not to have scored by half time, some great saves by Dubravka to keep us in though (as per)

Longstaff, Ritchie and Dubravka quality. Huge second half, Rafa has tactics spot on which is no surprise… #GANONMIGGYLAD
