Wolves have snapped a run of three straight league defeats by winning their last two league games, first beating Watford 4-0 and then scraping past Everton 1-0 last time out. Leeds broke a run of 6 defeats in a row in their last game with a dramatic late win against fellow relegation strugglers Norwich. Wolves are unbeaten in their last 6 meetings with Leeds, winning 5 of them and conceding just two goals in those 6 games. The game that ended in a draw was earlier this season where it finished 1-1 thanks to a 94th minute penalty for Leeds that was scored by Rodrigo. That game had 9 corners and 5 yellow cards and I feel we could get another game that is full of action here. Wolves defensive record is always off putting for goals, but whilst this is not a game that I would be going crazy over with bets on lots of goals, I am hopeful we should see a few. Corners and cards both look like good bets. Leeds style of play usually brings end to end games where we see a lot of chances which leads to corners. Wolves style of play is completely different and whilst I feel there will be times where Wolves can slow it down and control the game, I feel it is inevitable that at times this game will become very stretched and open. Cards look a good bet as these sides had a very feisty game earlier this season, and both teams strike me as the kind to hold a grudge. Plus both sides still technically have something to play for, Leeds are fighting for their lives and Wolves  are still not out of the race for European football, as they are only 5 points off 4th placed Arsenal. Leeds are coming into a game off a win for the first time in a long time, and that confidence could serve them well, but Wolves are a very difficult team to break down and I can see this being a hard fought draw, and a game that sometimes boils over.
