Leeds United boss Simon Grayson was full of praise for his two wingers after the pair helped Leeds to victory at Burnley.
Lloyd Sam was making his first championship start since September 2010 and it was his cross, which helped Leeds in their comeback. His deep cross was met by fellow winger Robert Snodgrass who guided the ball into the net.
Snodgrass secured the when a corner from Sam was only half cleared to Ramon Nunez who found Snodgrass once again unmarked at the far post and he once again guided the ball into the net.
Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Grayson said about the pair, "They are what you want from all the players in your team. Lloyd Sam came into the team and did very well as did Snodgrass. They worked extremely hard for the team; they put some good balls into the box and worked the shape of the team well. I am delighted for the two wide players. That is part and parcel of football, what they have got as well is the other side of the game where they can influence and create chances for the team."
Sam started eight of Leeds first eleven games last season after signing from Charlton Athletic in the summer. He quickly settled into the Leeds side and he scored three times in those eight games, but an injury-ravaged campaign saw him make just eleven more appearances from the substitute`s bench all season.
He has once again had to be content with mainly appearances from the substitute`s bench this season. Sam started the Carling Cup clashes with Bradford and Doncaster but he had made nine substitute appearances in the championship before the game at Burnley.
The winger was only in the side at Burnley after Danny Pugh suffered a hamstring injury at Leicester before the international break.
The on loan Stoke midfielder is already rated doubtful for next weekend`s Yorkshire derby with Barnsley, so Sam could get another chance in the Leeds side.
