Wolverhampton Wanderers face Leeds United in the Championship on Wednesday.

Ahead of Wednesday's meeting between the two sides, Wolves boss Nuno has praised Leeds and labelled Thomas Christiansen's men a very dangerous side - but insisted that his team will only be focusing on themselves, the Express and Star reports.

Had this game taken place before the weekend, it would have surely been foolish to suggest that anything other than a home win was likely with Leeds enduring a terrible run of form while Wolves topped the Championship going into the international break.

And while Wolves should still be clear favourites, Leeds will go into the contest having received a huge boost of confidence at the weekend after beating an in-form Middlesbrough side 2-1 at Elland Road and looking very good value for the three points. And Nuno has praised Wednesday's opponents, suggesting that he has been impressed by the way that Christiansen has got the Whites playing since his arrival in the summer.

"We analyse deeply the opponent we’re going to face. Leeds is a good team and the last game was a very good game for them," he said, as reported by the Express and Star.

"We know what we’re going to find and we will prepare ourselves for that but always with a focus on us.

"They’re a very dangerous side with quality players up front and good ideas of football."

Leeds will surely need to prove exactly why Nuno is impressed if they are to take a positive result back with them as Wolves are absolutely flying right now, and have the distinction of being one of just two teams to deny Manchester City a win in 90 minutes this term, having taken the Citizens to penalties in the Carabao Cup earlier in the campaign.

And with Wolves only drawing once and losing once at Molineux this season, Leeds will surely have to be at their absolute best if they want to prove that the win against Middlesbrough is the start of a bright run.
