About to get started at Wolverhampton Wanderers, can Leeds United turn it around after the last week of disappointing results? Hernandez is out, Dallas is out, Bridcutt is out, Berardi is out... let’s blame the last week on injuries?
Regardless, we’ll know more by 5pm tonight. Playoff-calibre teams win games like this, on the road against struggling sides. We’ll see.
Anthony Linley has a full preview you should read, and as long as the internet holds out, we’ll have live-tweets for you at @ThruItAllLIVE throughout. Let’s go win this one and bring everyone back to September highs.

Johnny Wakefield: 2-0 Wolves. Hate to be the pessimist, but we’re not playing well at the moment, and we need Bridcutt and Dallas to come back sooner rather than later. The midfield is a shambles. I’d love to be wrong.
Ben Mallis: 1-0 Leeds. There are no excuses today. Any rust from the international break should be gone. It’s time for the September version of Leeds United to return. Truth be told, this game feels like yet another indicator for the rest of this season, namely our hopes of fulfilling Cellino’s playoff promise. Promotion calibre sides should not be dropping points to opponents struggling in the league. Wolves have been doing just that lately, making three points the expectation toady.
Anthony Linley: 1-0 Leeds. Another close game that could go either way, but if Monk listens to my preview, then it will be a positive result for the Whites.
Jack Dudley: 2-0 Wolves. Apologies for the negativity, but Leeds aren't filling me with the best confidence at the moment. A promising September seems to be getting forgotten about, and we're struggling to get back to our rhythm. Our lack of goals is worrying me, as when we go behind in a game, we find it difficult to get back into it. First goal is crucial, but Leeds are relying on Wood too much, we need more sources.
Sean Ryan: 7-0 Leeds. I'm not giving a reason. I just finished a 15 hour shift and I've decided to be hopeful.
Joshua Gilbert: 1-1 Draw. I think Leeds are struggling this month and after a late slip in the last game, I unfortunately don't see us getting out of this game with a win.
James Mahoney: 0-0 bore draw. The way Leeds set up suits away games. I think Wolves will struggle to break us down. However, the lack of quality we have in the final third we ultimately cost us the 3 points.
And here’s how you’re feeling....
Yeeeahhhhh. Okay. You’re more optimistic than we were. That’s good. Let’s go. MOT
