'Everything stacking up against us' - Fans react to ace player ruled out of Leeds clash v Wolves

By Richard Parks

Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves will miss his team’s Championship clash against Leeds United at Elland Road on Wednesday night – and fans have taken to Twitter to express their concern at the absence of one of their star men.

The Portugal international, 20, will be absent due to a suspension carried over from the weekend.

Neves had been due to serve the second match of a two-game ban against Reading last Saturday after picking up his 10th yellow card of the season in the recent 2-2 draw against Norwich City.

But the postponement, due to the extreme weather conditions in over the weekend, means Neves’ ban carries over to the clash of the titans on Wednesday.

It is a boost for Leeds, who will face a Wolves team minus one of their star players this season.

However, Wolves supporters are concerned at being unable to call upon one of their most important players for the Elland Road showdown.

Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:


Neves has made a huge impact for Wolves since joining from Porto last summer.

The four-times Portugal international has started 32 of Wolves’ 34 league games – the only ones he has missed have been due to suspension – and his central midfield displays have been integral to their dominance of the Championship.
