Leeds V Wolves H2H

Leeds United head into the game against Wolverhampton Wanderers this weekend looking for a first win under Darko Milanic, while Kenny Jackett’s side will sense a chance to consolidate near the top of the Championship.

The key stats for each side seem to favour the away side who have a better attacking and defensive record in the league so far, which could make life difficult for Milanic’s team in front of their own side.

Wolves also appear to have more creativity in their team having created more big chances to score goals, which suggests if they are patient then they have enough to create some problems for the Leeds defence.

Wolves have also made a much higher number of accurate crosses based on games so far, which suggests they are able to switch the play effectively if they’re not being successful through the middle.

Where Leeds can potentially give themselves an advantage in the game is through their aggression all over the team.

They are tackling more effectively than Leeds and can create a really intimidating presence in defence and midfield, which makes it difficult for Wolves to pass the ball effectively to create those crosses and chances.

Conclusion: Wolves have been one of the pace setters in the Championship this season but if Leeds get stuck in, they can knock them off their game and potentially snatch a narrow win.
