Wolves vs Leeds by Luke
Wolves were more determined against Nottingham and took the victory away from home with the score of 1:2 although Nottingham started the game better than them. Wolves scored early in the second half with Benik Afobe, Nottingham tried to react, but Wolves won a penalty and made the 0:2, while Nottingham only managed to reduce to 1:2 in injury time with a goal by Blackstock.
With this victory Wolves reached 68 points, the same with Ipswich and Derby, but they lag on the goal difference. Now they need to stay focused like they did on Nottingham. They have a strong home record and the victory over Nottingham will be worth only if they will win over Leeds. The fans are expected to stand by their side tonight to the battle to enter the promotion playoffs. Good news for Wolves as the main goalkeeper Carl Ikeme returned from his injury and he played on Friday, so he will maintain his position under the posts. A fully fit squad for Wolves as only long term injured midfielder Tommy Rowe is missing.
Leeds got crashed at home against Blackburn with the score of 0:3, in a match where they played with ten men for more than 60 minutes. The match was balanced to the first 30 minutes, but things got easier for Blackburn to the second half as Leeds received the red just five minutes before half time. Tom Cairney, Jordan Rhodes and Jay Spearing scored the three goals of Blackburn while Leeds was just watching to the last ten minutes of the game.
Leeds has no motivational target left for this season and they just want to end this season with a nice way. Coach Neil Redfearn is annoyed by the club management and thinking about to retire, while there are many rumors to the club about ownership change. To make things worse, there was also an episode between defender Bellucci and the fans, as he refused to greet the fans of Leeds after the game. Leeds will play with some changed to their squad tonight. Key defensive midfielder Rodolph Austin is suspended, key midfielder Lewis cook is injured, midfielder Tommaso Bianchi is injured too.
Only Wolves is interested to win this game. Leeds awaits the end of the season and the climate is not the best for them. Little bit low odds, but Wolves really need to win.
