Welcome home Smithy!
“I don’t know what the reception will be,” said Smith.
“We played them at St James’ Park two seasons ago and I got a bad one then, so I am expecting the same at Elland Road.
“I have been back to watch games, but never as a player.
It is not something I have really wanted to do to be honest.
I have a great affiliation with the club, they brought me through the game. I was an academy player and a senior player when I left.
“I am not going to go into details as to the destination I went to. I don’t want to touch on it. People will express how they feel and I know that.”
