Leeds 0 Newcastle 2 – Watch both goals here

5 years ago

Leeds 0 Newcastle 2 –  Sunday 20 November 2016

Elland Road welcomed its first capacity crowd for over six years but it was business as usual for Newcastle United.

Newcastle made it nine wins in a row (eight in the Championship) thanks to two goals (watch them both below) from the recalled Dwight Gayle.

The Championship’s top scorer notched his 12th and 13th goals of the season thanks to a Rob Green horror mistake (and awareness from Gayle) and a brilliant team strike finished off with aplomb by the former Palace forward – well worth watching both below.
