Robert Snodgrass raises concerns about the Elland Road atmosphere

The former Leeds midfielder feels things just aren't the same at the famous ground right now.

Hull City midfielder Robert Snodgrass is concerned the buzz and atmosphere is not what it once was at Elland Road, according to BBC Radio Leeds.

Indeed, the 28-year-old remembers playing in front of the Leeds United crowd and considers it 'something special' and was never nervous in front of his own supporters.

But, after attending Leeds against Cardiff earlier this campaign, the Scot believes things aren't quite the same in Yorkshire at the moment.

Speaking on Friday night, Snodgrass told BBC Radio Leeds: "For me, the fans were a bonus. It was something special. This is the platform I wanted. It was never about nerves.

"I went to the game, Leeds United v Cardiff, but I could just tell 5 minutes in there wasn’t that buzz or atmosphere."

Naturally, there are plenty of reasons behind any subdued atmosphere at the Leeds ground. The instability of the club's ownership, the poor form of the Whites at Elland Road and more have all led to quieter and quieter home supporters.

It certainly isn't a reflection on fans themselves but more the turmoil that's surrounded Leeds recently.

Any wins or Alex Mowatt screamers have still been very well received lately and victory against Snodgrass's Hull outfit should still get the ground rocking.

But it's understandable that fans aren't as enthusiastic as they once were considering the on and off-pitch goings on at Leeds.
