PABLO Hernandez is set to make his return to a faltering Leeds United side as they face the unenviable task of taking on runaway Championship leaders Wolves at Elland Road tonight.

Hernandez picked up a muscle strain in the absorbing 2-2 draw against Derby last month and subsequently missed the next two fixtures, a narrow win over Brentford and a humbling defeat to Middlesbrough.

The Whites did not play at their best against Boro on Friday night and lacked creativity throughout the contest. They will be hoping that Hernandez can provide that spark against Wolves.

Leeds manager Paul Heckingbottom hinted that he will be looking to make changes to his 12th-placed side.

He said: "There is a lot to consider with the team. We aren't coming into the game on the back of a good performance where you are thinking everyone deserves another chance.

"It is another opportunity to learn about the players. We are playing against a team with a different set-up and style."

Heckingbottom knows the game against the league leaders will be tough but is relishing the prospect of his side being able to test themselves against the very best.

"We are at Elland Road under the lights, the Sky cameras are there, it is a big occasion and a big game for us," he said.

"We want to win the game and we want a performance. This game will tell me a lot, so I'm looking forward to it.

"We have to perform well to stand a chance and we have to be clinical in both boxes.

"We need to restrict them as much as we can and any opportunities that we do get, we need to be taking them."

Wolves have stumbled recently and have not picked up a win in three league games. They will also be missing star midfielder Ruben Neves through suspension.
