Leeds United beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 3-2 at Molineux Stadium in a come from behind win to massively boost their chances of survival in the Premier League.

After falling 2-0 down in the first half, Jesse Marsh’s side scored three unanswered goals in the second to 16th on the league table.

The hosts dominated the first half in every category. João Moutinho cut Leeds defense with a pinpoint pass to Trincao who squared the ball to Jonathan Otto who found the back of the net in 26th minute for the games first goal.

A long injury added time meant Wolves had enough to find their second goal. Again Leeds were caught napping from a free-kick with Daniel Podence getting behind the back line and passing for Tricao to slot home his teams second.

An earlier injury to Leeds’ main goal threat, Patrick Bamford, capped a miserable first half for the visitors.

The tide of the game turned when Raul Jimenez was sent off after running into Illan Meslier for his second yellow card offence in the 53rd minute.

Leeds made the numerical advantage count, with two goals in the space of four minutes from Jack Harrison and Rodrigo to level the match in dramatic fashion.

Jack Harrison scored from a rebound after Luke Ayling’s strike clattered off the right upright in the 63rd minute and Rodrigo made full use of Saïss’ mistimed clearance to slot home the equalizer with Jose Sa nowhere in the picture in the 66th minute of the game.

The drama was not over though as Luke Ayling popped up with the winner in the 91st minute to make sure Leeds United beat Wolverhampton Wanderers and spark wild celebrations among the Leeds players and supporters an

The visitors dug in and survived late pressure to earn a crucial victory to pull seven points clear of the relegation zone with the Wolves sitting eighth on 46 points.
