Steve Bull: Leeds will be a tough trip for Wolves

Hopefully all the lads who have been away on international duty have come back feeling confident and energetic for Wolves’ trip to Leeds on Monday.

It seems most of them have had a successful time with their countries – Conor Coady continuing to impress with England, Adama Traore making his Spain debut and Daniel Podence his Portugal bow.

They seem to have all come back fit without Covid-19 as well, which will be a relief to Nuno.

He will, of course, be wishing he had more time to prepare for this game as it is going to be a tough one.

Leeds, back in the old days, used to be rock-hard – not afraid to go through players and make their presence felt.

Now, they are more of a footballing side. I have watched them a couple of times this season and fair play to Marcelo Bielsa, he has done really well with them.

They have every chance of being the team that Sheffield United were last season, a bit of a surprise package, as they do not seem to fear anybody and have a set playing style.

What I am most worried about is whether Nuno has had enough time with the lads ahead of it.

Another few days would have been ideal but, fingers crossed, they are able to knuckle down and get a result at Elland Road.

It has not quite clicked in the first four games, but we still have more points than we did at this stage last year. The new players need to properly bed in, get those fresh partnerships on the pitch and everyone on the same wavelength.

It will take a bit of time, but if we can get more wins on the board while it is a bit of a work in progress, things should only get better as the season goes on.

Finally, I want to thank everyone who took part in the Promise Dreams Golf Day at Penn Golf Club this week to raise vital funds for the charity. Let’s get three points at Leeds!
