Wolves Fans Fly To Benidorm For Newcastle Match As It's Cheaper Than Train Ride

A Wolverhampton Wanderers fan has decided to travel to Benidorm for the club's match against Newcastle United after claiming that it was cheaper than getting the train.

Steve Horton posted an image on Twitter of him in the Spanish city with another fan, saying that he had flown out using Ryanair for the trip.

When it comes to commitment, there is no faulting these two blokes for making the trip to St James' Park in style -- and what a way to do it, too!

Horton's tweet has caught the attention of many football fans, who are impressed by the effort that he has put into the journey.

The Magpies are 15th in the Premier League and will be looking to pick up an important three points against 13th-placed Wolves.

Wolves manager Nuno Espírito Santo praised Newcastle boss Rafael Benítez ahead of the match.

"Rafa Benítez is a fantastic manager, with all the titles he's achieved," he said (via NUFC The Mag).

"The way he works and prepares, you see how organised Newcastle are. Their discipline, with good football, is a reflection of a very good manager that I really respect.

"We know what we're going to find.

"They got a good result, a draw away from home [at Everton]. They started the competition against difficult opponents, it was hard. They bounced back, we watched their last game and we're going to face a difficult team.

"Newcastle have good players, a very good manager, and the atmosphere is going to be noisy. We have to be prepared and knowing what we did before will not help us on Sunday.

"We won a very difficult game [against Chelsea], but we didn't solve all our problems.

"We made mistakes against Chelsea even though we won.

"We have the same approach, positives and negatives, and we try to find solutions and prepare for Newcastle.

"The way we conceded the goal we were organised and suddenly there's a deflection and you're behind against a big team.

"The reaction was very good and this is the building of a team that wants to compete against any opponent, we still have a very long way to go, but the way we reacted was very good."

Who will win out of Wolves and Newcastle?
