Snodgrass "we’re fighting and we’re going to keep on fighting.“

Robert Snodgrass believes Leeds’ fight back at Turf Moor proves they have the battling qualities needed to gain promotion.The Scottish midfielder scored twice late on as ­Simon Grayson’s men came from behind to snatch victory at Burnley.Snodgrass’s double outshone Jay Rodriguez’s opener for the Clarets and the win moved Leeds into the play-off spots.Last season Leeds were battling it out at the top of the Championship table, but a serious dip in form towards the end of the campaign saw them miss out on the play-offs.However, Snodgrass ­believes recovering from a 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Blackpool with a win over Leicester and a comeback at Turf Moor proves they are made of sterner stuff this year.He said: “We’ve had two great victories against two teams that have done well in the Championship.“They made it difficult for us, but it’s showed our character, that we’ve come back from the Blackpool defeat. It’s very sweet. This takes us further and we’re up there.“This shows the fans we’re fighting and we’re going to keep on fighting.“The first part of the ­season last year we were up there but we fell away towards the end.“This year we will keep fighting and it’s up to the manager and the backroom staff to help us put that right.”
