Jimmy-Floyd Hasselbaink has told Amazon Prime Video Sport that Jack Harrison deserves credit for being able to find the top corner after running the length of the pitch – during Leeds United’s 5-2 win over Newcastle United.
Leeds ended a dismal run of just one win in six games with a brilliant 5-2 victory, but they did go behind. Jeff Hendrick opened the scoring at the back post, but from that point in, Leeds were only going to win the match.
Goals from Patrick Bamford, Rodrigo, Stuart Dallas, Gjanni Alioski and Harrison saw Leeds claim all three points – despite Ciaran Clark making it 2-2 at one stage. Harrison, 24, scored the pick of the goals.
With the scoreline reading 4-2, Harrison broke forward from a Newcastle corner and lashed a 25-yard effort into the top corner of Karl Darlow’s goal. Hasselbaink commented on his effort, applauding him for his goal.
