Rafa Benitez bemoans added time decision as Leeds snatch late equaliser

Posted April 15, 2017

Songs in praise of Rafael Benitez and Garry Monk, the clubs' respected leaders, paid tribute to the way each has improved the fortunes of Newcastle United and Leeds United respectively. Today was 95 minutes!

"Spirit and competitiveness is a big strength of ours and you saw that clearly today".

"The only way we have to see it is to win as many games as we can out of these last five, and that starts with the first one (at Wolves) tomorrow", Hughton told a press conference. "I am not happy with things that were going on and that is it". I am trying to focus on the team, we are a top side.

Asked about the pitch invader, Benitez added: "I will not talk too much about that".

When it was put to him that the game might have been stopped if it was a boxing match, he said: "We must have a granite chin".

Seemed to struggle at various points under heavy Newcastle pressure - particularly when up against Yoan Gouffran on Newcastle's left hand side. I thought we defended unsafe situations really well too. I will say again, if you analyse the last games, my understanding of the rules have changed a little bit. The home side were very unlucky not to take home all three points. When it finally did, it was given to Jamal Lascelles; Mitrovic got away from all the heat of Jansson and Bartley and headed a centre across the goal, where Lascelles scrambled above all and headed marginally over the line. I'd like to think it was the moment; part of me also thinks it was the progress made by the group.

Monk has claimed he is confident of securing a result at St James' Park but knows that Newcastle are gunning for automatic promotion and could move top, temporarily at least, by taking three points against fifth-placed Leeds on Friday. But a point felt as good as a win in the circumstances.

"We showed what a spirit we have, the determination not to give up until the end and that is what brought the goal".

Leeds United: Green; Ayling, Bartley, Jansson, Berardi (Taylor 78); Phillips, Bridcutt (Doukara 76); Roofe, Hernandez, Pedraza (Sacko 61), Wood.Unused substitutes: Peacock-Farrell, Vieira, O'Kane, Dallas.
