Wolves star: It will be a dream to play at Elland Road

Molineux - Wolves - Billy Wright Stand

Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Lee Evans says it will be a dream to play at Elland Road.

Wolverhampton Wanderers prospect Lee Evans says that it has been his childhood dream to play at Elland Road.

Evans grew up supporting the Whites and he says it will be a special moment for him this weekend, when he gets to play at the stadium he has been to as a fan. 

Evans is likely to start in central-midfield for Wolves on Saturday, but he insists that he will have no split loyalties during the fixture. 

“It will be something special for me because it’s something I’ve dreamt of as a kid so it will be nice to play there," he said to Wolves' official site.

"All my family – my dad Dean, all my uncles on the other side – everyone supports Leeds. It goes to the old days in the Don Revie era – it’s stuck through and the old man instilled it into me."

“When I was younger, I went up there to watch them loads of times. My dad would take me up there on the odd occasion, maybe twice a season when I was younger."

"All I’m interested in is three points because hopefully we can go on another good run."

Evans isn't the only Wolves player looking forward to the chance to play at the Yorkshire club's ground, either.

The 19-year-old's teammate, Dave Edwards, also says that it will be a fantastic experience to be able to play at Elland Road.

“It’s a ground I love playing at personally,” he said.

“I think any footballer loves playing there with all the history."

Despite Wolves' liking of the ground, they will be hoping to disappoint the home crowd's support by pilling further misery on the Elland Road club.

The Whites have not won in their last five games and another defeat will see the pressure on the squad grow considerably.
