Temporary Manager Steve Davis got the chance to taste a first victory at home as they defeated Leeds United with substitute Boubacar Traore scored a late goal in the 85th minute mark that booked the host a spot in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup. 12BET offers an accurate football prediction with accurate and real-time data across all international and European tournaments.

With this victory, the incoming manager Julen Lopetegui will have his first game with the team in the last 16 of this tournament. While Davis will have a final game with Wolves against the current premier league standing leader Arsenal. 

On the other side, Leeds United Assistant manager Rene Maric expressed his defense on the club’s decision of resting the key core players and fielding four debutants to focus more on the major tournaments as Arsenal, Tottenham, and Chelesea eliminated also from the tournament. 

“We have no regrets. You have to look at our games recently – intense matches in a tough schedule.”

It is highly expected that the former Spain and Real Madrid coach will take the official control and a manager handling job over the weekend. Despite Wolves currently at the relegation zone of the EPL standing, this competition is the bright spot of the team and that gives Lopetegui something to hope and build for when the domestic league actions are back after the World Cup pause. 

The first half of the match is quiet, with little to no actions happening on both sides. Wolves kept on attacking the defense of Leeds and the visiting squad did not let their defense break down and tighten it to end the first 45 minutes in a scoreless. Wolves finally made their first mark, and the only goal of the match when Podence made a great job down the right and passed to fellow sub Traore, who did not think twice and kicked the ball to leave Robles no chance.

Wolves are not happy with Mexico’s decision to include injured Raul Jimenez on the roster

Wolves expressed their frustrations over Mexico’s decision to include the star striker Raul Jimenez on the bench for the pre-World Cup friendly game against Iraq. The temporary boss Steve Davis said that the team were very ‘unhappy’ after letting Jimenez join his national squad despite having an injury and the Football Association of Mexico already assured Wolves that they have no intention of playing Jimenez.

‘He was named on the bench but not ready to play. We’re not happy with that because of how it looks,” said Steve Davis during post-match.
