After their 3-0 win over Preston the Whites have crept closer to their promotion goal and go into this weekend's double header five points ahead of seventh-placed Fulham and three in front of sixth-placed Sheffield Wednesday with a plus four better goal difference.

The breakthrough finally came for Newcastle in the 67th minute when Mitrovic headed the ball across the face of the goal and skipper Jamaal Lascelles rose to power in a header which Green reached but was unable to stop crossing the line.

Whilst Rafa Benitez's Magpies have fallen four points adrift of league leaders Brighton and Hove Albion in the race for the Championship title after failing to hang onto all three points.

However, in the fifth minute of stoppage time, Wood found himself gifted with space in the Newcastle penalty area, and made no mistake by heading in his only effort on goal. "I am pleased with the performance of the team, the commitment, the passion, the way we played the chances we had", said the Spaniard.

The first 10 minutes or so was quit even and Leeds hit the bar and Darlow saved the follow up, then their next shot on target was in the 95th minute.

With the Sky Sports cameras in town, Newcastle were looking for a win that would see them take another big step towards automatic promotion, which still seems an inevitability of course, but they were denied by that man Chris Wood.

Both teams' form has been shaky in recent weeks, winning just two of their last five league games respectively.

"Jonjo Shelvey, Dwight Gayle and Matt Ritchie - they're all £10million players".

Monk said: "It always feels better in one changing room than the other when you get a goal like that, it felt good".

"When we are at our best we know we can beat anybody in this league, we know it will be very hard to do that, but we go up there with that intention". "You need the mentality, the spirit but also the quality and we were able to show that quality in that single moment, which was important and sometimes that is all that takes", he added. "I am sure Newcastle will get promoted in my eyes".
