Give Us The Snod

Description: Robert Snodgrass the United striker here poses with a fan outside the Stadium:MK before the Football League First Division clash with the Milton Keynes Dons on the 26th September, 2009. Snodgrass bagged a late winner in the game against the Dons after heading home a Bradley Johnson free-kick in the 93rd minute.

Gary McAllister beat a host of other clubs when he signed the highly rated Robert Snodgrass in late July, 2008 from Scottish outfit Livingston on a three year contract. After some excellent match winning performances 'Snoddy' soon established himself as one of Grayson's automatic choices for his first eleven and with two years left on his current contract he was offered a new four year deal with United at the beginning of the 2009-10 season. The Members Club Player of the Year for 2008-09 was delighted with the offer. "It`s been great since I came down here last summer and I really love the club. From the fans to the back-room staff and the other players..."

Unbeaten in the league United were playing a MK Dons side who were also flying high in the League One table, the Buckinghamshire outfit had only suffered one defeat all season before the game with Grayson's men, the same fixture last season saw the end of Gary McAllister as manager of Leeds as United went down 3-1 which topped a dismal run for the Whites and United were out for revenge. Grayson made two changes for the game with Mike Grella coming in for Luciano Becchio who was away on father watch as his wife was expecting a baby and Leigh Bromby returned in place of Lubo Michalik. Michalik soon returned to the action though replacing Jason Crowe who pulled up in the game after seven minutes with a suspected hamstring injury. It was the home side who looked the most threatening in the early stages with Higgs pulling off a couple of good saves to deny The Dons, United themselves had chances including a free kick by Bradley Johnson. United worked themselves back into the game as the half drew on but there was few chances either way in a close contest. Higgs did pull off a wonderful save as he got down well to save an effort from a MK Dons striker and the excitement continued before the half time whistle blew with Jason Puncheon the MK Dons midfielder seeing red after a diabolical challenge on Michael Doyle. United turned it up at the start of the second half with Mike Grella, Leigh Bromby and Jermaine Beckford all having early efforts on goal while the home side were restricted to just one effort on goal in the first ten minutes. Possession equalled out as the game went on and it looked like the game was ending for a 0-0 draw with both sides making little chances. It was in the four minutes of extra time added when United finally made the breakthrough, Bradley Johnson delivered a pinpoint free-kick onto the head of Robert Snodgrass who powered the ball into the back of the net. Around 4,500 United fans watched the game at the Stadium:MK and it was the travelling faithfull who were celebrating for the final few seconds as United snatched their revenge in the final minute of the game.

Leeds United: Higgs, Crowe, Kisnorbo, Bromby, Doyle, Howson, Johnson, Hughes, Beckford, Grella, Snodgrass.
Subs: Michalik for Crowe, Robinson for Hughes, Ankergren for Higgs.
