Matteo said: “They’ve been in dodgy form at home, but they are a decent side with good players. They’re a dangerous team, so it will be a tough game for us.”
After a fantastic season last year, Kenny Jackett has struggled to replicate that form with Wolves this term, and they sit in 14th place, with 25 points after 20 games.
They are still outside promotion contenders, but the Molineux club are not storming the division in the same way as they were last term.
For Leeds, they head to Wolves two points off their opponents, and looking to remain undefeated for the third game in a row. A surprise victory over Hull City was followed by an frustrating 0-0 draw at Charlton, and Leeds will consider themselves likely to pick up at least a point against Wolves.
However, Matteo is under no illusions, and the former star is well aware that Steve Evans’ men face a tough task.
In Benik Afobe, Wolves have one of the best goalscorers in the Championship, and they will pose a threat whenever entering Leeds’ defensive third.
Coming away with a point should be considered a success for Leeds, but that is not to say they could not pick up all three with a strong performance against Jackett’s side.
