Leeds squandered several good chances to go in front but were undone in the 75th minute as Jonjo Shelvey's low free-kick from the edge of the area sailed through the Whites area and past Illan Meslier with the help of a slight Magpies touch in the box.

In winning for only the second time this season, Newcastle brought themselves seven points behind the Whites who stay 15th, seven points clear of the drop zone.

YEP football writer Lee Sobot hands out the scores from an extremely disappointing afternoon at Elland Road.
