On Wednesday night, Leeds host league leaders Wolves in the Championship, as the visitors look to move a step closer to sealing automatic promotion to the Premier League.
Leeds chances of making the play-offs seem to get slimmer by the week, as the Whites are now 12th place in the second tier table, eight points off the top-six. The Yorkshire outfit’s record of one win in 11 league outings has not helped their chances of making the play-offs.
Last time out Paul Heckingbottom’s side suffered a 3-0 defeat at seventh-place Middlesbrough. The result means that the home team have now conceded at least two goals in five of their last six Championship games.
The Whites recent home record in the Championship is not a great one either, as they have won just one of their last five league outings at Elland Road. Their recent home games in the league have been high scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored in three of their last four home games in the Championship.
Wolves are still six points clear at the top of the Championship table, despite failing to win in their last three games in the second tier. The side from the Midlands are also ten points clear of third-place Aston Villa, so are looking good for automatic promotion this season. Last time out, the visitors suffered a 2-0 defeat at in-form Fulham.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have been inconsistent on their travels of late, winning two, drawing three and losing one of their last six away games in the Championship. Their recent away games in the second tier have been low scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in their last four away outings.
Wolves have looked impressive for most of the Championship campaign. I believe they will have enough quality to beat Leeds and moved one step closer to promotion to the top-flight.
