In the 72nd minute, Newcastle beat Chris Wood 1-0 on penalties at home on Friday night.
The McPhee managed to move three points clear of the relegation zone to avoid a three-match unbeaten run in the Premier League, but Bruno Legge's men missed out on a place in the top six.
Miguel Almiron, who replaced Ryan Fraser in the 12th minute of the poor first half, saw a great goal in the first half after Wolfsburg defender Brunogi Marez's amazing ball bounced off the crossbar. Half of it is not reduced.
I think Newcastle took the lead with a pretty stupid goal. Guimaraes re-selected Almiron, and the divisions turned neatly back to the Brazilian route, mixing Willy Boly and Jonny, and then passed the ball for Chris Wood to roll the ball. However, Gimarez was left-back in the foul and the goal was scored after a VAR inspection.
48 minutes later, referee Peter Bankes shouted sympathetically and decided at the end of the first half that both sides could not cross the line and scored 0.14 goals between them.
At the end of the match, Fabian Schar's powerful free-kick was deflected by Wood into Dan Burn's path, but the center-back was unable to make a clear shot.
At the other end, The Swedish defender recovered in time to block South Korea's shot from the edge of the box, with Hum Hee-chan intercepting Wolff early in the first half into Emil Krafth.
Joao Moutinho was able to cross the six-yard box and drop more than one-half of Wolfe's body, avoiding Conakodi and Fabio Silva.
The Frenchman then fired a free-kick past the goalkeeper in the face as the McPhee struggled to regain control of the game, shouting for a quality Oscar.
Newcastle were awarded a penalty in the 20th minute when Saint-Maximin released a neat turn in the free-kick, which he played through Woods, who was removed from Jose Sa, who had little contact.
The New Zealand squad was not without its pitfalls to give the hosts a valuable lead.
When Saint-Maximin denied Guimaraes, Eddie Howe's side came close for a second, but Moutinho, who resigned, had a crucial impact to turn around from a corner.
Fabio Silva could not control his header from Merkel's high cross, and in the twinkling of an eye, Martin Davies was relieved.
Bolton could not clear the long ball into the Wolves area, so Jolington pushed Salt to the final rescue.
