The day a Snodgrass double spoiled a fitting farewell to a Turf Moor legend

Robert Snodgrass pounced twice in the last 14 minutes in November 2011 to prevent Burnley paying a winning tribute to former Whites manager Jimmy Adamson who spent his entire 486-game playing career with the Clarets. The winger slid home Lloyd Sam's cross on 76 minutes to equalise after Jay Rodriguez had headed home a 10th-minute opener. And on 89 minutes, he chested the ball down at the back post to fire home a winner to silence the crowd and send Leeds fifth.
