Jesse Marsch will be looking to secure his second victory as Leeds manager when he takes his side to Molineux to face Wolves in the Premier League on Friday.

A dramatic 2-1 win over fellow relegation-battlers Norwich ended a run of eight games without a win for Leeds, who are out of the drop zone but still mathematically at risk because of Burnley's two outstanding games in hand.

Looking to stop their fun will be European hopefuls Wolves, who sit eighth in the table after consecutive recent wins over Watford and Everton.

Here's all you need to know about this one.

Wolves team news

Right-back continues to be a problem position for Bruno Lage as both Nelson Semedo and Ki-Jana Hoever remain sidelined. Expect Jonny Otto to continue to fill in to help out, with Marcal or Rayan Ait-Nouri doing the honours on the left.

Hwang Hee-chan will face a late fitness test after limping off early against Everton, but he wasn't mentioned by Lage when he rattled off his list of absentees. The same can't be said for Pedro Neto, who is out with a foot issue.


Leeds team news

Left-back Junior Firpo won't be seen for the next month while he recovers from a knee problem, while Tyler Roberts remains sidelined while he recovers from surgery on his hamstring. There are also doubts over Rodrigo's thigh injury.

Joe Gelhardt, the saviour against Norwich, has picked up a back injury and missed an Under-23s game during the week in which Lewis Bate and Jamie Shackleton both also picked up injuries to add to Marsch's headache.

It's not all doom and gloom, however, as Liam Cooper and Kalvin Phillips are both back in full training and available to play here.


Wolves vs Leeds score prediction

Scraping a last-minute winner against the league's bottom side isn't the blessing Marsch would like it to be. Leeds still have a lot of work to do and their squad continues to be stretched beyond belief due to injuries.

It's hard to see them getting a result against a Wolves side who thumped Watford and then dispatched of Everton with real quality. Lage's men are in good form, and that's a real problem for Leeds.

This one looks like a comfortable Wolves win.

Prediction: Wolves 2-0 Leeds
