But the goal stood to cancel out Isaac Hayden's second-half opener as the spoils were shared at Molineux.
Indeed, a last minute goal from Wolves cost us two points and made the game finish a draw - a result that we certainly didn't deserve.
The win was sealed in the third minute of time added on in the second half, with Jony firing past Aitor Fernández.
The Wolves centre-back did put his arms on Dubravka's shoulders but the Newcastle goalkeeper was able to jump for the ball and his decision to try to catch the ball instead of punching it clear ultimately backfired.
Replays showed, however, that the Slovakian was meagre in his attempt to claim the ball. The Spaniard marched onto the pitch at the final whistle and raged at referee Graham Scott.
Newcastle's protests were minimal, however, and it did not take long before Dubravka was exchanging heated words with his captain Jamaal Lascelles.
A furious Benitez said: "We had the three points, it was very disappointing to concede the way we conceded". You have to protect the keeper.
"It's something we have to defend better, the cross". We deserved the win, as we played well, but it just wasn't to be.
Benitez said: "In England they don't understand the rules".
"Rafa does not have grounds to complain, particularly when we know that we are lucky to get 60 minutes of actual playing time in the 90".
