Leeds United enter into tonight’s home game against Wolverhampton Wanderers on the back of two wins; a 2-1 away defeat of Birmingham City and a scrappy 3-2 home victory over Reading last time out.

The Whites are looking for three successive victories for only the second time this season and a win that will give them the impetus to push toward a five-season best placing, hopefully inside the top 10.

Home games at Elland Road always bring with them that chance that off-field distractions with marches, projections and fly-bys the order of day in previous protests. After two wins, no matter how scrappy they were, there is also a sense of expectation that the fans want a continuation of these better showings – not a sinking into the despair of previous games.

Leeds United team news

Leeds make three changes to the side that started the topsy-turvy 3-2 win over Reading at Elland Road on Saturday with Sol Bamba, Lewie Coyle and Lee Erwin making starts – the latter his first for the Whites in the Championship. Italian defender Giuseppe Bellusci makes way for club captain Bamba and Stuart Dallas, still feeling the strains of a slight illness, drops to the benach to allow to the bench to accommodate the inclusion of youngster Coyle. Mirco Antenucci drops out of the starting 11 to allow ex-Motherwell player Erwin to step out at Elland Road on a sunny Tuesday evening.

News of a team’s line-up is always debated, and tonight is no different with Leeds fans having their say over on Twitter.

Leeds fans Jack is more than happy about an Erwin start at Elland Road.

That sentiment being echoed by this Leeds United fan.

However, some fans are simply not in synch with Steve Evans’ choices and likely formation.

Whilst some Leeds fans are just plain old doom n’ gloom on the player’s ability to handle the atmosphere.

Leeds fan Tom asks why one player in particular isn’t being considered.

This Leeds United fan certainly has the bit between his teeth.

Last, but by no means least, this Leeds fan isn’t trusting the vagaries of the Yorkshire weather.
