“We said before the game we need to think about the Wolves game last time when they nicked a result in the last minute and they have done it again.
“It is one of those frustrating things. They are not a bogey team, but we have played them twice and played really well both times and just for some reasons that last ounce of concentration wasn’t there. But we can’t fault the effort or performance away from home.”
On his own future, Hayden was unapologetic for going public in his desire to leave the North East last month. He said: “Everyone is going to have their opinions on certain things, but I am one of those people who wear their heart on their sleeve and are always honest.
“I am not going to hold emotions in, if some people don’t like it, they don’t like it, if they like it then fair enough.
“I don’t think anyone can look at the effort in the last few games and say I haven’t been committed or given everything to the cause. I have tried my best.”
