Mark Lawrenson makes prediction for Leeds vs Wolves

Wolverhampton Wanderers head to West Yorkshire on Saturday in search of three more Premier League points.

It’s Leeds United at Elland Road up next for Bruno Lage and his players, and confidence should be high.

The dramatic comeback win against Aston Villa means Wolves have now taken 12 points from the last 15 available.

It is an encouraging run, but Lage will be under no illusions his side still need to improve.

Leeds have got some injuries ahead of the game.

It is therefore a great chance for Wolves to keep their run going.

BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson has been previewing the weekend’s Premier League fixtures, and made his prediction for the game at Elland Road.

He thinks Wolves’ winning run will end, and the game will finish 1-1.

He said: “Wolves are on a roll, with four wins in their past five games, and they are scoring some goals now too.

“Meanwhile, Leeds lost again last week, at Southampton. They were without Kalvin Phillips, Raphinha and Patrick Bamford at St Mary’s and Raphinha might be the only one of that trio who plays here.

“This is a tricky time for Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa but I think they will find some form soon – it might not happen until Phillips and Bamford are back though.”

Wolves gunning for elusive 4th straight PL win

Saturday presents a brilliant chance for Wolves to do something they haven’t managed since returning to the Premier League in 2017 – win four games in a row in the competition.

Nuno Espirito Santo came close on a few occasions.

Wolves won three league games in a row on three occasions in 2018/19.

In 2019/20 they won three in a row on one occasion. And last term, they didn’t manage it once.

So there is perhaps an even greater incentive to get the win against Leeds.
