    Wolves - v - Leeds United ***Matchday Thread***



    TEAM NEWS

    Injured Wolves pair Willy Boly and Daniel Podence are getting closer to full fitness but will definitely miss Friday's visit of Leeds United.

    Forward Raul Jimenez is now training individually outdoors but is still a long way away from a return.

    Leeds United captain Kalvin Phillips is unavailable due to a calf problem and is joined on the sidelines by Rodrigo.

    Mateusz Klich has been playing with a hip injury in recent weeks but is available along with Diego Llorente.

    MATCH FACTS

    Head-to-head

    Wolves have won their last four league matches against Leeds, scoring nine goals and conceding just once.Leeds have won two of their last three away league meetings, more than they had in their previous 16 visits to Molineux.Wolves are unbeaten in the last eight top-flight home meetings, winning five and drawing three.

    Wolves

    Wolves have won two of their last three Premier League games - as many as they had in their previous 14 matches in the competition. They are looking to win back-to-back league games for the first time since October. Wolves haven't opened the scoring in any of their last 14 league games. Ruben Neves has scored four goals in seven Premier League appearances in 2021 having failed to find the net in his 34 league games last year.Aside from three own goals by Chris Smalling, Tammy Abraham and Dan Burn, Wolves' last 98 Premier League goals have been scored by non-English players.

Leeds have won six of their last seven away Premier League matches played outside London.

    Without Kalvin I don't fancy our chances sadly.

    Hope to see Struijk back at centre back, he is ineffective in that midfield role and actually harms our style at times.

    Really hope that common sense prevails tonight - taking onboard last weeks shambolic / crazy team selection & first half display.
    Just resolve the Phillips issue, nothing else, saying that Klich sounds only 80% fit.
    Be great to see Gelhardt & Jenkins play some part if poss.

    Hope that Dallas drops back to left back, Klitch in the Phillips role, and Shack added to the forward midfield, Don't think Alliosky will have a chance against Traori - better the steadier Dallas IMO, and keep Stuijk along side Cooperwith Ayling back on the right.

    Expecting only our third draw of the season tonight though.... would love to be proved wrongh in a positive way of course

    I doubt Llorente will get through the warm up.

    I only hope that Cooper remembers which way their goal is and doesn't spend 90 minutes passing backwards or, if he's feeling very adventurous, sideways. He has actually got a very good long, cross field pass which would suit Raphinha if he could remeber where he left it.

    We can't rely on Phillips all the time and be a one man team.....and yet we do, put struik as centre half and dallas in the Phillips role, leave llorente on the bench.

    Give me strength - Roberts starting? Think I'd rather see Pablo in the middle.

    BBC says Shackleton at RB but I assume (hope) that will be Ayling with Struijk and Cooper (back pass) in the middle?

    Maybe sicknote will shuffle off the bench at some point?
