Rafa Benitez disappointed with officials against Leeds
Newcastle looked to be sitting on the brink of promotion before Chris Wood prodded home in the fifth minute of added time to cancel out Jamaal Lascelles' 67th-minute header and snatch a 1-1 draw at St James' Park.
Benitez was pleased by his side's performance but appeared to be unhappy with the addition of a minimum of five minutes by the officials.

The Spaniard was disappointed with officials in the 1-0 win over Burton earlier this month, when his side were controversially disallowed a penalty.
The Magpies manager said: "I'm pleased with the performance of the team, the commitment, the passion, the effort, the way that we played, the chances that we had.
"I'm disappointed because we made a mistake at the end – and when I say at the end, 95 minutes.
