Hull City's Robert Snodgrass reacts on Twitter after making comeback in time to face Leeds United

Leeds United East Stand

Hull City take on Leeds United this weekend in Championship action.

Robert Snodgrass made his Hull City comeback against Manchester City on Tuesday night, just in time for him to face his former club Leeds United on Saturday.

Snodgrass has been out for 15 months with injury, but he returned to action in the Capital One Cup at the Etihad Stadium.

The attacker was brought in the 73rd minute of Hull’s 4-1 defeat to City, as he ended his long wait for competitive action.

Snodgrass was understandably delighted with his return and he posted on social media site Twitter after the contest.

Snodgrass will now be hoping to make up for lost time, and he could step up his comeback at Elland Road at the weekend.

Although the 28-year-old is unlikely to start in the contest against Leeds, he could well come off the bench and Whites fans know all about his quality.

Snodgrass spent four years with Leeds between 2008 and 2012, and he is still fondly remembered by their supporters.

The Scotland international scored 41 times in 193 appearances during his time with Leeds earlier in his career, but he will be hoping to play a part in a Hull victory on Saturday.

If the Tigers can beat Steve Evans’ side, they could move back to the top of the Championship table and take another positive step towards promotion.
