Robert Snodgrass sends message to Leeds United and Hull City fans on Twitter

Leeds United East Stand

Leeds United beat Hull City 2-1 in Championship action yesterday.

Robert Snodgrass has thanked Leeds United and Hull City supporters on Twitter for the reception he received at Elland Road yesterday.

Snodgrass was clapped by all four stands, as he entered the field late on during Hull’s 2-1 defeat to Leeds.

Snodgrass is still fondly remembered by Leeds supporters, after he spent four years with them earlier in his career.

The Scotland international, though, was disappointed that he was unable to come back to haunt his former side.

Snodgrass was brought on with Hull looking to come back from behind, but he was unable to provide them with the attacking spark required to break down the Whites' defence.

Snodgrass is currently on his way back from injury, after spending 15 months on the sidelines.

The 28-year-old is still searching for match sharpness, but he has the potential to play a key part for the Tigers when he is back to full fitness.

Hull’s defeat at Elland Road has seen them drop down to fourth in the Championship table, while Leeds sit in 17th place.
