Jamie Redknapp reacts to Leeds United win v Wolves live on Sky Sports before Everton game

Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp believes Leeds United’s 4-2 win over Wolves at the Molineux on Saturday [18 March] is huge for their chances of Premier League survival.

The Whites climbed out of the Premier League relegation zone after holding off a late Wolves fightback to win an enthralling game at Molineux.

The victory lifts Javi Gracia’s side – who started the day in 19th – four places and two points above the bottom three before Everton kick-off against Chelsea in the evening fixture.

And Redknapp speaking live on Sky Sports’ coverage of that Everton game [18 March, 5:05 pm] said: “That big result for Leeds that gets them up to 14th is huge for them.”

Huge result

Saturday’s game against their relegation rivals was a test of Leeds United’s mettle under Javi Gracia and they passed that test with flying colours in what was a huge result for the whole club.

Wolves will have been favourites heading into the contest having previously beaten Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur at the Molinuex in recent weeks so for the Whites to go there and beat them 4-2 is a huge statement of intent from the West Yorkshire side.

With just four points separating 12th from the bottom of the Premier League table, any kind of win is crucial to any side down there and this performance from Gracia’s men is one they must take going forward.

The international break may come at a bad time for the Whites having just picked up momentum again and it will be a huge test for the Spaniard to kick things off again and build from this win in a fortnight’s time.

In other Leeds United news, the Whites are in the frame to sign an “absolutely incredible” record-breaking goalscorer in the summer.
