Wolves seem to have turned a corner after a eight-game winless streak in the Premier League left them 14th, albeit nine points off the relegation zone.
However, the three points finally came against Arsenal in early February, before a goalless draw against Champions League-chasing Leicester and a 2-1 win over Southampton helped ease the pressure on Nuno Espirito Santo.
Leeds’ league matches have featured more goals than anyone else in the division this season (82) and they will be hoping to show the same spirit at Molineux that they displayed in the second half of their 4-2 loss on Sunday to Arsenal, who they are hoping to leapfrog into the top half tonight.

Willy Boly and Daniel Podence are nearing a return to first-team action, but tonight’s match comes too soon for the pair. In another big boost for the hosts, Raul Jimenez – who scored the only goal in the reverse fixture at Elland Road in October is now training individually, but the Mexican is a long way off making a return.
Games between these sides have produced a Wolves win in the last four meetings, with Leeds last coming out on top in October 2016.
…to coverage of tonight’s Premier League mid-table clash between Wolves and Leeds at Molineux. Leeds will be looking to leapfrog Arsenal and jump into the top 10 after losing 4-2 to the Gunners last weekend.
The hosts meanwhile seem to have turned a corner after a eight-game winless run left them 14th at the end of January. However, wins over Arsenal and Southampton, either side of a creditable draw at home to Leicester, have eased the pressure on under-fire boss Nuno Espirito Santo.
Team news is coming up shortly…
