KEY BATTLE

Scott Golbourne v Stuart Dallas: Dallas’ form is getting better and better and Charlton struggled to cope with him in the second half on Saturday. His performance was the pick of the bunch at The Valley and Leeds will always see chances when the Northern Ireland international cuts loose like that. Playing on the right, he’ll be up against Scott Golbourne tonight.

KEY MAN

Benik Afobe: It’s magic, you know. Dicko, Afobe, Sako. Or so they used to sing as Molineux. But Bakaray Sako has gone to Crystal Palace and Nouha Dicko is injured, which leaves only Afobe. The former Arsenal trainee has done his best to carry Wolves this season and he’s got eight goals so far. He’s been on the bench for the last couple of games but Kenny Jackett might fancy him for this fixture.

LAST TIME AT MOLINEUX

Monday, April 6, 2015: Wolverhampton Wanderers 4 Leeds United 3. Goals: Wolves - Dicko 19, 45. Afobe 48, Edwards 88. Leeds - Taylor 11, Batth 65(og), Mowatt 74

EXPERT VIEW

Phil Hay says: The statistics suggest this is likely to end in stalemate. Wolves have drawn seven games, Leeds have drawn eight and while Jackett’s side seem to have more goals in them, their defence is worse than United’s. That said, if either side wants to make something of this season then they need to get some momentum together soon. Don’t expect Wolves or Leeds to play for a point.
