Leeds United may have Pierre-Michel Lasogga and Stuart Dallas back available for their Wednesday night clash against Wolves at Molineux, according to a reliable journalist.

BBC Radio Yorkshire reporter Adam Pope claimed on his personal Twitter account on Sunday that the attacking duo will potentially be back in contention after missing the win against Middlesbrough.

Lasogga, 25, was a surprise omission from the Whites squad that beat Garry Monk’s side 2-1, however it was reported by the Yorkshire Evening Post that the German forward was suffering with illness.

Dallas, 26, was also absent from Thomas Christiansen’s team selection prior to kick-off, seemingly due to an ankle injury he sustained while on international duty with Northern Ireland.

To have both of the players back in contention for the game against top-of-the-table Wolves is no doubt a major boost for Leeds, who will be running high on confidence after beating rivals Boro 2-1 on Sunday.

That victory halted a rotten run of form to see them move back up to seventh spot in the Championship standings, but a trip to the West Midlands to face Wolves presents the Whites with an all together new challenge.

Christiansen will want all his players fighting fit and he has changed his side around for midweek fixtures so far this season, so he is likely to do it again at Molineux.
