HALF-TIME REPORT: Leeds United 1-0 Wolverhampton Wanderers

Elland Road pitchside

An 18th-minute goal from Mirco Antenucci has seen Leeds United go into the half-time interval of their Championship clash against Wolverhampton Wanderers 1-0 ahead.

Leeds United are 1-0 up against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Elland Road in the Championship.

The Whites headed into the game having yet to win under new manager Darko Milanic, but they are on course to changing that record.

It was Wolves, though, who had the first chance of the game after just eight minutes when Dave Edwards headed towards goal, but his effort went over the Leeds crossbar.

Then minutes later Steve Morison and Alex Mowatt had chances in succession, before Mirco Antenucci opened the scoring on 18 minutes.

It was Morison who provided the assist, allowing Antenucci to shoot home from inside the Wolves penalty box.

Morison could have added a second assist to his name on 25 minutes had Alex Mowatt been able to turn his cross in.

Leeds had yet another good chance to double the lead on the half-hour mark, but Tommaso Bianchi’s header from a Giuseppe Bellusci cross went wide.
