Ian Holloway explains how Robert Snodgrass will feel going back to Leeds

Hull City KC Stadium

The pundit has been discussing Hull's former Leeds midfielder.

Ian Holloway believes Robert Snodgrass will be 'emotional' returning to Leeds United this weekend and hopes the home supporters don't give the midfielder any 'stick,' according to his regular Sky Sports predictions column.

Snodgrass has recently returned from an extended period out injured for Hull City and Holloway is in awe of the Scot's talent.

And the 28-year-old will face a tough test returning to former club Leeds this weekend, according to the pundit and ex-coach.

Holloway told Sky Sports: "It was great to see Robert Snodgrass come back from 15 months off for Hull in midweek. He's such a talented player.

"When you've got a long-term injury and you've got to keep seeing the other lads at the training ground, laughing and joking on the pitch, it's mentally very tough.

"He will be emotional going back to Leeds, who he was very proud to play for. I just hope he doesn't get any stick."

It should certainly be an eventful occasion for Snodgrass and Leeds fans. It should also be quite different from when Ross McCormack returned to Elland Road for the first time last season.

The Scot was given plenty of stick, especially while he ended up in one of the stands collecting the ball back for his Fulham side.

As for Leeds as a whole, Saturday's clash again Hull offers them the opportunity to move away from the relegation zone. The Whites are currently just four points clear of the danger area; after the Hull Game, United travel to Charlton and then Wolves.
