The fifth-bottom Whites will be looking to build on Sunday's epic 2-1 victory at home to Norwich City in which Joe Gelhardt struck a 94th-minute winner, just three minutes after Kenny McLean's strike had cancelled out Rodrigo's opener.

Wolves, meanwhile, will be seeking to land a third win on the bounce tonight having followed last Thursday's 4-0 victory at home to Watford with Sunday's 1-0 success at Everton.

Bruno Lage's side have now won seven of their last 11 league games.

How we expect Leeds to line up

Good evening from Molineux!

This was quite telling from Jesse Marsch on Thursday, asked how do you translate the magic of Elland Road to away games like this one against Wolves

“First of all, at Leicester, I thought we had a really good support in the stadium which was fantastic to see and feel. I think we will have that again at Wolves. It’s important to understand what games and what match plans need to look like when we are at home and what they need to look like when we are not. Certainly I think being aggressive at home rewards the fans and the energy and the mood in the stadium and then understanding how to manage the moments on the road where 90-minutes full aggression can not always be the best plan. We will address that a little but for how we deal with Wolves this weekend but in the end we always want to be aggressive and we always want to go after the game in a big way and we will.”

Awaiting the Leeds players at Molineux, expecting Phillips and Cooper returns with the duo seemingly likely to both be on the bench.
