It was another night to forget for Steve Bruce's side, despite a promising spell in the game.
After over 450 minutes without a goal, The Magpies finally found the net from open play thanks to a 57th minute strike from Miguel Almiron but ultimately, it was another disappointing night as United continue to struggle for form.
And even before kick-off, plenty of Newcastle fans could only laugh when the likes of Callum Wilson and Jacob Murphy tried to test goalkeeper Karl Darlow between the sticks.

It didn't take long for Leeds to make an impact in the game and winger Raphinha opened the scoring in the first-half after a blistering counter-attack.
To their credit though, Newcastle stuck in and managed to find a way back into the game through Almiron's efforts.
But it was Marcelo Bielsa's side who walked away from Elland Road with all three points thanks to a wonderfully nonchalant strike from Jack Harrison that sealed the 2-1 win.
Loving the nonchalance of Jack Harrison :sunglasses:- Football on BT Sport (@btsportfootball) January 26, 2021
