QUALITY MOMENTS: But no goal for Leeds United's Rodrigo
For all their good football of the first half, Leeds United suffered defeat at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Some of the Whites' first-half football was excellent, but did not translate into enough shots on target, never mind a goal.

Let off for 45 minutes, Wolves came back to win the game 1-0 with a Raul Jimenez shot headed past Illan Meslier for the only goal of the game.

Luke Ayling – got forward well in the first half, less so in the second, reflecting the shifted balance of power 7

Robin Koch – a couple of important block 7

Pascal Struijk – substituted after injuring himself slipping to open the door for the goal 6

Stuart Dallas – did a really good tactical job 7
