Leeds United fans have sent positive messages to Queens Park Rangers striker Matt Smith on social networking site Twitter.

Smith featured for QPR in the Championship game against Leeds away from home at Elland Road on Saturday afternoon.

The 27-year-old striker started the match and played for 78 minutes, as it ended in a goalless draw.

The Englishman played for Leeds during the 2013-14 season before joining Championship rivals Fulham.

Smith switched to QPR from the Cottagers in the January transfer window, and it seems that Leeds fans have fond memories of the striker.

Smith is a good striker, and he is only going to grow in importance at QPR. Rangers do not have a chance of finishing in the Championship playoffs, but with the 27-year-old in the team, the London club will be able to challenge for a top-six finish next season.

Meanwhile, Leeds are fourth in the Championship table at the moment and should end the season in the playoffs. The Whites will face Brighton & Hove Albion at Elland Road in the league next weekend.
