When will Wolves' home woes end?

FT: Wolves 2-3 Leeds

In the year of 2015, there have been 12 goals in this fixture at Molineux and two cracking matches with both sides claiming victory.

But there was to be no late heroics from Dave Edwards tonight as Wolves capitulated to defeat in a woeful second-half performance, with Leeds deservedly taking all three points.

Wolves' search for a first win at home since the beginning of October continues. Leeds, on the other hand, continue their improvement under Steve Evans.

We will bring you more live Championship coverage as Birmingham take on Cardiff tomorrow night, but for now, thank you for joining us.

FT: Wolves 2-3 Leeds

Leeds United forward Souleymane Doukara told Sky Sports:

"I try to do my best for the team. We have to work hard together and we can get some results like tonight."

FT: Wolves 2-3 Leeds

Leeds United winger Sam Byram told Sky Sports:

"It's been frustrating for me but it's nice to be back in the team and help the lads get the win in an important game for us.

"We've battered them and done well to get the three points.

"I don't get too many so to get two goals in a game is nice and it's good to win the match, as well."

FULL-TIME

Wolves 2-3 Leeds

And that's that at Molineux. Leeds United pull off their first win at Molineux in 31 years thanks to a fantastic second half display.

Benik Afobe's early goal gave Wolves a comfortable lead for much of the first half but Sam Byram's goal right before the break killed much of the hosts' momentum.

A fine second half performance, with quickfire goals from Stuart Dallas and another from Byram, sent the visitors on the way to three points following an awful defensive display from Wolves.

Nathan Byrne pulled a goal back for Wolves, but it was too little too late, as their poor home form continued.

Wolves 2-3 Leeds

Nathan Byrne does well to win the ball deep in the Leeds half and lays up Jordan Graham to fire straight at Marco Antenucci and that could be game over for Wolves.

Wolves 2-3 Leeds

Time's running out for Wolves. Nathan Byrne fires wide from just outside the box but the hosts will need to try harder if they're to equalise.

Wolves 2-3 Leeds

Jordan Graham, who's had yet another superb game for Wolves, lofts another ball into the box but Marco Silvestri catches his cross.

Wolves 2-3 Leeds

There will be five additional minutes at Molineux.

Wolves 2-3 Leeds

Jordan Graham whips another ball into the box, this time to Wolves captain Danny Batth who's somehow pushed up front, but the ball goes over the bar.

The hosts don't have long left to find an equaliser, here.

GOAL (Byrne)

Wolves 2-3 Leeds

Wow. Quite a goal. Maybe the comeback is on!

Nathan Byrne scores his first goal for Wolves as he does well to volley home Jordan Graham's cross after striding past the Leeds back line.

That's Graham's fourth assist in his last three games.

SUBSTITUTION

Wolves 1-3 Leeds

Leeds make their second change of the night as Chris Wood is replaced by Mirco Antenucci.

Adam Le Fondre

The hosts will be hoping Adam Le Fondre can make a difference as we near the final 10 minutes of normal time.

Can he inspire a Wolves fightback?

Wolves 1-3 Leeds

Jordan Graham catches Adam Le Fondre unmarked and onside but the Wolves man's header fails to trouble Leeds keeper Marco Silvestri.

All the fight from the hosts in the first half has well and truly fizzled out on an unseasonably warm night in Wolverhampton.

Wolves 1-3 Leeds

Kevin McDonald tries to find Benik Afobe with a long ball but the Wolves striker is offside.

Sums up the hosts' second half!

Wolves 1-3 Leeds

You have to say Leeds look comfortable with their lead, right now. Wolves are offering absolutely nothing going forward and it's showing. The home fans' atmosphere has definitely died down but the Leeds contingent sound more than happy with their performance so far.

SUBSTITUTION

Wolves 1-3 Leeds

Wolves make their second change of the night after Adam Le Fondre came on for David Edwards, as James Henry is replaced by Nathan Byrne.

GOAL (Byram)

Wolves 1-3 Leeds

Charlie Taylor crosses into the box and Sam Byram shoulders the ball past a stunned Carl Ikeme to nab his second of the night.

Wolves have got their work cut out here if they're to get anything out of this game. They have completely fallen apart since the start of the second half.

We saw a comeback in this fixture last season, can Wolves find an answer?

GREAT SAVE!

The hosts look all over the place, here. Carl Ikeme is forced into another save to deny Chris Wood from close range after Wolves defenders Dominic Iorfa and Danny Batth collide in the box.

GREAT SAVE!

Wolves 1-2 Leeds

What a save from Carl Ikeme!

Leeds definitely have their tails up and nearly make it 3-1 as Chris Wood, the subject of some transfer speculation at Molineux during the summer, nods a powerful header goalbound but the Wolves keeper pulls off a fine save.

GOAL (Dallas)

Wolves 1-2 Leeds

Leeds have well and truly caught out the Wolves' defence as Stuart Dallas flies past both Ethan Ebanks-Landell and Jack Price before he unleashes a shot completely unopposed that has Carl Ikeme well beaten at the near post.

You couldn't have seen this coming after 40 minutes.

@BBCSport Great character from Leeds and some player Byram is. Can see Leeds going on with the momentum and winning now. #bbcfootball

They've certainly started on the front foot so far in this second half Kyle.

Wolves 1-1 Leeds

Souleymane Doukara wins the ball thanks to a midfield mishap by Ethan Ebanks-Landell and lays the ball onto Chris Wood who finds himself unmarked, but Carl Ikeme comes out and does well to save.

That was a big chance for Leeds.

Wolves 1-1 Leeds

Leeds get us under way for the second half at Molineux.

Mourinho latest...

It's certainly been a day that will live long in the memory for football fans, with Jose Mourinho parting ways with Chelsea this afternoon.

However, the players were not to blame for the the 52-year-old's sacking, according to the club's technical director Michael Emenalo.

I'm guessing that Massimo Cellino is currently checking what names he has under M in his address book. #bbcfootball

Maybe the address book will go back in his pocket for the moment after that late first-half equaliser from Sam Byram!

HALF-TIME

Wolves 1-1 Leeds

A sucker punch for the hosts at the end of a first half they controlled.

Other than Stuart Dallas hitting the post early on, Leeds looked out of shape and unable to deal with Wolves' attacking threat.

Following Benik Afobe's opener, Wolves looked comfortable but they will be annoyed to concede against the run of play after Sam Byram restored parity.

GOAL (Byram)

Wolves 1-1 Leeds

Well that has come out of nowhere. Some quick feet from Chris Wood has the Wolves captain Danny Batth fooled as he sets up Sam Byram who easily slots past Carl Ikeme.

That's exactly what Steve Evans will have wanted, right on the stroke of half time.

Wolves 1-0 Leeds

The game - and Molineux - has quietened down as we steadily approach the interval in the Black Country.

Wolves looking comfortable with their lead but Leeds have so far had few answers going forward.

The half time whistle can't come soon enough for Steve Evans' men.

Wolves 1-0 Leeds

Jordan Graham tries his luck from outside the Leeds box but his low effort is well saved by Marco Silvestri.

The Wolves man is carrying on his fine form of late tonight.

Wolves 1-0 Leeds

Looks like Leeds are playing two up top with the introduction of Souleymane Doukara after just half an hour. 

Can Leeds find their way back into this game?

SUBSTITUTION

Steve Evans makes his first change of the night as Tom Adeyemi makes way for Souleymane Doukara.

Wolves 1-0 Leeds

A Wolves corner is cleared by Leeds but Dominic Iorfa launches the ball back into the box where Danny Batth sets up Benik Afobe who turns and shoots narrowly wide.

The hosts looking threatening going forward and the fans are loving it. They haven't been quiet all night!

Wolves 1-0 Leeds

Wolves look very well organised in the middle of the park. Once again, Jordan Graham bullies his way to the ball on the halfway line and darts down the left flank before trying to tee up Benik Afobe, but Leeds defender Liam Cooper is on hand to clear the danger.

#bbcfootball who cares about Mourinho? Wolves are winning and that's all that matters!!

Wolves 1-0 Leeds

Jack Price has had a great start for Wolves who look full of confidence after taking the lead. The Wolves midfielder has bossed the midfield and almost sets up a second for Benik Afobe when he lifts the ball into the box but the Wolves striker's header goes wide.

Wolves 1-0 Leeds

The home crowd are now in fine voice after Benik Afobe's opener. The Molineux faithful have not seen Wolves win at home since a 3-0 win against Huddersfield Town on 3 October.

Wolves' poor home form
BBC Sport

GOAL (Afobe)

Wolves 1-0 Leeds

What a confidence booster for the hosts and Benik Afobe who nabs his second goal in his last 10 matches. A superb nod down from James Henry sets up the striker who just beats the offside trap before sliding it home.

What a start!

Benik Afobe

Wolves 0-0 Leeds

Benik Afobe wastes Wolves' first chance on goal after some fantastic work from Jordan Graham who cuts through the Leeds back line with ease to tee up the Wolves striker, but his scuffed shot fails to trouble Leeds keeper Marco Silvestri.
