Smith had netted winning goals in both of Fulham's Championship games this season, but could not mark his return to Elland Road with a goal, or a victory.
The striker commented on Twitter after the 1-1 draw, and gave his view that Fulham were hard done by not to record a win.
He also addressed Leeds supporters, thanking the for the positive reception he received, commenting that he was humbled.
Disappointed going away with just 1pt tonight! We deserved more. Humbling reception at Elland Rd. Thanks for that. Safe trip home #FFC fans.— Matt Smith (@mattjpsmith) August 16, 2016
Smith did not depart Leeds with any ill feeling, unlike when Ross McCormack quit the Whites for Fulham, and his efforts at Elland Road were generally appreciated, even though he was never a prolific striker for the club.
The attacker also had kind words for teammate Ryan Sessegnon, who at just 16 was a surprise starter for the away side.
Special mention to @RyanSessegnon. Absolutely superb! I remember when I was 16... Doing my GCSE's at school and playing Sunday league— Matt Smith (@mattjpsmith) August 16, 2016
The teenager evidently has a bright future in the game, and winning over the support of experienced pro's like Smith shows the impact he is quickly making.
