Sports Mole previews that Championship meeting between Leeds United and Wolverhampton Wanderers at Elland Road this weekend.

Leeds United will be keen to end a run of five matches without a win when they host Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Championship this weekend.

Darko Milanic is yet to secure his first win since being appointed as Leeds manager last month, with his side's 1-1 draw with Norwich City earlier this week leaving them 15th in the table.

Giuseppe Bellusci has been accused of racially abusing Cameron Jerome during the stalemate for the Canaries earlier this week, but the FA's investigation is unlikely to be concluded by the weekend, leaving the defender available for this match.

Aidy White is continuing to work on his fitness after suffering a broken metatarsal in pre-season, but confirmed earlier this month that he is nearing the end of his recovery. This weekend's match may come too soon, however.

Meanwhile, Wolves have lost just once in their last 11 outings in the league, leaving last season's League One champions fourth in the table.

Kenny Jackett's side followed up their dramatic 3-3 draw with Millwall last weekend with a 2-0 win over Middlesbrough earlier this week to keep them in the playoff places.

Wolves continue to be without backup goalkeeper Aaron McCarey after he underwent surgery for a bulging disc in his back, but the manager has an otherwise healthy squad for the trip.

In the last meeting between these sides in February last year, the teams played to a 2-2 draw.
