Robert Snodgrass says Hull City are surprised by his form

Robert Snodgrass has made 18 appearances for Hull City this season.

Robert Snodgrass has told BBC Sport that Hull City have been surprised by his form this season.

Snodgrass has played 18 times for the Tigers this campaign, after making a successful recovery from long-term injury.

The Scotland international missed 15 months’ worth of action after dislocating his knee.

However, he has made a very successful comeback, and now looks to be a key part of Steve Bruce’s starting line-up.

“I wanted to get back playing for Hull City, scoring goals, creating goals,” Snodgrass said.

"I've started doing all that, and they're surprised at how well I've done.”

Snodgrass has started 12 games for Hull this season, and he has managed to score on two occasions.

He looks set to be a vital player, as Bruce’s side aim to achieve promotion from the Championship.

Hull are currently in fourth place in the second tier - five points back from the automatic promotion spots.

Snodgrass’ good form for the Tigers has been rewarded, with Scotland calling him up to their latest squad for their upcoming friendly against the Czech Republic.
