Wolves v Leeds United: Early team news, is the game on TV? What time is kick-off?

Wolves host Leeds United this weekend with both sides in need of a win to relieve a lot of the pressure in the relegation battle.

This season’s scrap at the bottom of the table looks to be one of the most intense in the league’s history, with as many as nine teams in with a strong chance of being in the mix, come May.

Leeds and Wolves are two of those sides, having changed their managers from the start of the season in order to correct their trajectory, opting for Spaniard’s Javi Gracia and Julen Lopetegui respectively.

It’s a match that could see Wolves extend their gap to the bottom three with a win, while Leeds in 19th could go within a point of 13th-placed Wolves with a win tomorrow.

Here, we look at all the latest matchday information as we look ahead to kick-off…

What time is kick-off?

Kick-off is at 3pm on Saturday 17th March, at Molineux.

Is the game on TV?

The game will not be televised, as it falls in the UK blackout of games being played at 3pm.

Who are the referees?

Referee: Michael Salisbury. Assistants: Gary Beswick, Adam Nunn. Fourth official: Andre Marriner. VAR: David Coote. Assistant VAR: Lee Betts.

Referee Salisbury was in charge of Leeds’ trip to Tottenham where Harry Kane’s goal was inexplicably allowed as Illan Meslier was barged into his goal, before sending Tyler Adams off for a second bookable offence.
