Javi Gracia told he's 'upped the ante' at Leeds United by Ian Wright amid Jack Harrison verdict

Former Premier League striker Ian Wright has hailed Leeds United head coach Javi Gracia for turning around Jack Harrison's season, and 'upping the ante' at Elland Road.

The Whites ran riot at Molineux last weekend in their final Premier League game before the international break, finding four goals thanks to Jack Harrison, Luke Ayling, Rasmus Kristensen and Rodrigo.

But it was Harrison who received the plaudits from Wright, who was shocked at how Gracia has managed to turn around what has been a poor season by his usual standards so quickly.

"I was reading the other day, Harrison has got four goal involvements in four games [under Gracia], and only had three in 23 under Jesse Marsch," he pointed out on his Wrighty's House podcast.

"They've [Harrison and Gracia] have just upped the ante with everybody, they're playing a lot better right now and they just look so energised. If I'm teams above Leeds and Southampton, I'd be very worried because they've got this momentum right now.

"They've got the bit between their teeth.

"You worry for teams like Wolves because one minute, they're beating teams and then the next they're losing, and then they'll come back into the game and then in the next they'll lose 4-0."
