'100% for the team' - Dicko's message ahead of Wolves-Leeds clash

Elland Road East Stand

Wolves forward Nouha Dicko believes his side's work ethic could give Leeds problems this weekend.

Wolves striker Nouha Dicko has a daunting message for Leeds United ahead of the match between the two sides this weekend.

Dicko has spoken about the recent struggles of the Wolves side as they have tried to stay in the hunt for the lead at the top of the Championship.

The 2-0 win against Middlesbrough from earlier this week ended a run of four games without a victory, as Kenny Jackett’s team get back on track in their fight for promotion to the Premier League.

Speaking ahead of the trip to Elland Road, Dicko has stressed the team’s unity and togetherness, which can be important in any intimidating away game such as visiting Leeds United.

“Everybody is working 100 per cent for the team. We are just the ones up the pitch who score,” he told the Birmingham Mail.

“We shouldn’t forget the other lads like Danny Batth, Ethan Ebanks-Landell and Richard Stearman - they are working great at the back. It’s thanks to them that we are playing well.”

Dicko’s comments suggest he has confidence in every single area of the team and Wolves have the motivation of potentially going joint top this weekend if they win at Leeds and other results go their way.

Leeds head into the match still looking for a first win under Darko Milanic who has overseen only draws and defeats since he was appointed as the club’s next head coach by Italian owner Massimo Cellino.

Leeds’ support can intimidate even the most experienced of sides so it’s important, as far as Dicko’s concerned, that Wolves take a unity and togetherness into the match, which will be difficult for Leeds to break.
