Early March, Wednesday night, Elland Road, Yorkshire.

One of the great English grounds where the home fans are fiercely partisan in their support of their club.

A match against the league leaders and they will be well up for it.

Both sides full of attacking intent which should lead to a fine spectacle as chances are created at both ends.

Forecast for this one, Wolves to score three or four as they show their class.

Leeds 2 Wolves 4.

Nervous match for us, any type of win would be massive for confidence yet Neves again missing to bring the calm in the middle of the park and Saiss still very wary of challenging lest he get a ban as well.

Leeds' defence is very poor but will Wolves' attackers regain their confidence enough to drive at them and get shots off?

At the other end Lasogga is a Mitrovic quality forward, probably too strong for this league but a borderline PL player - we can't let him bully us.

It will be very interesting to see which attackers Nuno elects to start with. Surely after the flimsy February attacking threat, Afobe deserves at least one proper start up there with Cav's support.

Damned unfortunate the lads didn't get the chance to boost their confidence with the home game vs Reading - and now instead, an away day in Leeds - a great one to win, but will be a bldy awful one to lose.

Will Nuno be brave enough to swap keepers, send Afobe back, etc etc - whatever we had 4 months ago, needs to be re-found.

I don't see any grounds to send him back. They're happy for us to pay his wages until the end of the season and so unless he's a bad influence (which I can't believe he would be) he'll be staying put. Besides, it would be silly to write him off yet as he could become more useful than he has been.

As for changing keepers...I'm not sure that's wise either unless Ruddy has lost form during training as well.

Four months ago we had both Jota and Bonatini able to rip defences apart but for some reason they've both lost form. It's down to them to get their mojo back rather than for Nuno to perform knee-jerk reactions.

Hold on a sec, what about the Brentford and Sheff Utd games, they weren't 4 months ago? Any road, we've got the players, Nuno just needs to make sure they're focussed and up for the run-in.

Send Afobe back? wtf! :lol:

He's hardly had a chance and it's not his fault OTHER players seem to be off the pace.

Leeds is always a game I want us to win, but the fact they're one of the 3 clubs to make the complaint against us just gives it that little added edge. As if it needed one :wink:

I was trying to point out that whilst they've had a dip in form there's no need for Nuno to make massive changes. The four months issue is neither here nor there.

We shouldn't panic. PNE are a tough team and Norwich we would have beaten if not for the keeping error. Fulham did beat us convincingly but they're the best team in the league at the moment who have also beaten Villa Derby and Sheff Utd in the same run of results.

Neves having a nice winter break too just to get him ready for the run in :wink: :wink:

We fucked up against Norwich, and I don't think Fulham beat us convincingly, rather we were lackadaisical, giving them the first goal when we should have been leading from an early counter attack.

Good point about Neves, he'll be like a new signing :wink:

The chasing pack are bang in form, so it's time for us to up the ante, and for Nuno to earn his corn.

When I look at Leeds two things stand out that Wolves can take advantage of.

Length of the pitch.

Dodgy Keeper.

I remember many horrible afternoons against this rubbish. Leeds and Small Heath, horrid , horrid people.

Just hope we put 4 past them.

Mediocre team are Leeds, Christiansen was unfortunate to get the bullet, had them higher than they should be. Neves is again a big miss but we should still have too much for them.

Spot on! I am still confident, but the nerves are there! Then again, no one EVER performs at their best without a bit of adrenalin.... We WILL get there, but perhaps not as convincingly as looked possible at one stage....

Be bold! Be confident!! Be positive!!!

(And that goes for fans AND players AND coaches!)

Costa, Gibbs-White and Afobe not a bad 3 to bring off the bench if needed :shock:

Surprised Batth is back, but we have let in too many goals lately so maybe I shouldn't be.

Cavaleiro has shot saved.

Jota miskicks in front.

Both one on one with keeper to beat.

The dodgy keeper was dropped but we have not really tested this new one
At 8 minutes past 8 Jota misses an easy change again...big moment

For all the ball, its 2 set pieces that have done it
I'm pleased with the score, it could be a big win...but the missed chances are a worry

Wolves score TWO goals from corners, the times they are a changing. Its about time we had a side so full of flair and creativity that we can command our victories in such a way......... and so on and so forth......... football pundits, football bollocks, get it in the net and fuck em off.

I would like to see Afobe on for Bonatini. It`s just not happening for Bonatini at the moment. Other than that, normal service looks to be resumed.

We must not panic.

Hoddle and Frankowki are there if we need them.
