Simon Grayson heralded the performance of Robert Snodgrass after his Leeds side came away from Coventry with a 3-2 victory.

United made it back-to-back wins with one of their most impressive performances of the season, given to them by goals from captain Jonny Howson, Snodgrass and Max Gradel's penalty.

"He's been getting his fitness back, he's got a lot of quality and it was probably the best game he's had for a number if weeks," Grayson said.

Snodgrass' goal - a 20-yard curler - was symptomatic of his performance on the day, and Grayson was happy to see the 23-year-old firing again.

"He's got that in his locker and I'm delighted for him," he said. "In any game you want to put the home team of the back foot and we did that (with Howson's fourth-minute opener). Snodgrass showed a lot of composure to pick Jonny Howson out. The second goal saw Snodgrass show a lot of quality and he was great, especially in the first half.

"Jonny and Robert will get the plaudits for the goals but ultimately it was a good team performance and you have to win matches in different ways at times and this was one of those."
