Leeds are back to the scene of their first victory of the new season which came via a 1-0 victory against Watford before the international break.

United then returned to action with last weekend's clash at Southampton in which Leeds failed to register a single shot on target en route to a 1-0 defeat.

The reverse left Marcelo Bielsa's Whites fourth-bottom and just three points clear of the dropzone ahead of this afternoon's hosting of 11th-placed Wolves who have won their last three.

Writing in the match-day programme, United captain Cooper said: "We've spent a lot of time analysing the Southampton match and we've had a hard week of training at Thorp Arch in preparation for this afternoon.

"Over recent years, whenever we have had a negative result or performance, we have nearly always been able to show a reaction and bounce back in the following games and it is important we do that again now."
