Matt Smith sends message to Leeds fans on Twitter ahead of Championship clash

Fulham Turnstiles

Fulham striker Matt Smith says he can't wait to face Leeds at Craven Cottage this evening.

Fulham striker Matt Smith has paid tribute to his former club ahead of facing them on Wednesday evening.

Smith left Leeds United in the summer transfer window, where he played 48 games after being snapped up from Oldham Athletic.

The 25-year-old striker used his Twitter page to explain just how much he enjoyed his time at Elland Road.

Smith got off to a nightmare start at Fulham, sent off on his debut, and then struggling to force his way back into the team.

He was sent out on loan to League One side Bristol City in November, and only left the Robins at the end of February.

The target man really found form on loan, scoring 13 goals in 20 matches, and has now earned a place in Kit Symons team attempting to help Fulham avoid relegation to the same division he has just been recalled from.

He is likely to feature alongside fellow ex-Leeds star Ross McCormack, but it is Smith who is likely to receive a more favourable reception from the travelling support.
