Luke Ayling – 7 – Very solid apart from a soft header back to Green but Jansson did brilliantly to cover him. He was lucky not to give away a penalty but it would’ve been a soft call.
Kyle Bartley – 8 – Strong performance from Bartley. Constantly defended well from set-pieces and had a great tussle with Mitrovic all night.
Pontus Jansson – 9 – Jansson epitomises what Leeds United is all about. Throwing his body at everything and not forgetting the header to stop Mitrovic from heading into an empty net. Got a booking for a very soft handball and he’s one more from a three match suspension.
Gaetano Berardi – 7 – I thought Berardi dealt quite well with the Ritchie threat, as we said 90% of Newcastle’s chances came from aerial balls and set-plays and I think it shows how well we stopped Newcastle from cutting us open.
