The hosts have struggled this season, prompting the dismissal of manager Bruno Lage. Wolves lost 3-2 to Brighton and Hove Albion in the Premier League last weekend. They will now hope for better luck in the Carabao Cup as they prepare for the arrival of their new manager Julen Lopetegui.
Wolves beat Preston North End 2-1 in the previous round of the cup competition. They were knocked out at this stage of the tournament last season and will hope to fare better this time.
Leeds, meanwhile, have also had their struggles this season but have found good form of late, picking up back-to-back dramatic victories. They beat Bournemouth 4-3 in their last league outing, putting out a brilliant second-half showing to overturn a two-goal deficit.
The visitors faced Fulham at this stage of the competition last season and won on penalties after the game had ended goalless in regulation time.
