Leeds United left St. James' Park with a point after playing out a 1-1 draw.

Raphinha opened the scoring and the Whites piled on the pressure in a half that could have seen them add three or four to the scoresheet.

Leeds failed to make the most of their chances and Allan Saint-Maximin equalised just before half time.

Magpies boss Steve Bruce has since said he believed they could have won the game, despite Leeds United's dominating performance in the first half.

"What I was pleased about more than anything was the performance and the response of the team after a difficult 20 minutes it's fair to say," he said.

"There was a tactical change but the attitude of the players to a man, they've given us everything they possibly could.

"The response of the team is the most important thing. Most people would agree it was a fantastic game of football.

"If I'm going to be honest, I honestly believe it could have gone either way, which I was delighted about.

"It was end to end, a really enjoyable game of football. I was hoping for a bit of luck our way.

"I thought we had the better chances but when you look at it, especially first half, we found it very difficult first 20 minutes."
