JACK Harrison condemned Newcastle boss Steve Bruce to fresh misery as Leeds ended their three-game losing streak with a 2-1 victory in the Premier League at St James' Park last night.

The midfielder clinched three points with a sweet 61st-minute strike, four minutes after Miguel Almiron had cancelled out Raphinha’s first-half opener, to leave the beleaguered Magpies head coach without a win in 11 games in all competitions.

Leeds started much the better and did not have to wait long for the breakthrough.

Patrick Bamford raced away to feed Rodrigo, whose pull-back was dispatched expertly beyond goalkeeper Karl Darlow and into the bottom corner by Raphinha.

Jonjo Shelvey and Ryan Fraser both fired over as the Magpies improved, but they were nearly two down at the break when Raphinha’s effort rattled the post.

Almiron and Jamaal Lascelles both went close early in the second half, and Bruce’s team got their reward with 57 minutes gone when Callum Wilson laid the ball off to Almiron and saw him beat keeper Illan Meslier.

Leeds were back in front within four minutes, however, when Raphinha picked out Harrison in space on the left and he thumped a shot in off the far post with the outside of his left foot.

Newcastle full-back Jamal Lewis blasted wastefully over when presented with a glorious opportunity to level and Meslier pulled off a fine reaction save to keep out Shelvey’s header with 14 minutes remaining.

Meslier preserved his side’s lead with another good stop to keep out Fabian Schar’s strike and, in a frenetic conclusion, there was no way back for the hosts.
