Vio Ganea's first half goal proved to be the difference between the two sides with Simon Walton seeing red for Leeds.
Wolves started brightly with Neil Sullivan keeping out a stinging effort from Lee Naylor.
Leeds came close to scoring on 34 minutes when Matthew Kilgallon saw his header kept out by Stefan Postma.
Minutes later David Healy was denied by another fine Postma save.
The home side were inches away from scoring when Tom Huddlestone's shot hit the bar and from the rebound Ganea saw his shot pushed onto the crossbar by Sullivan.
Ganea did find the net on 38 minutes when Seol Ki-hyeon played the Romanian through on goal and he coolly slotted the ball past Sullivan.
The goal was Wolves' 6,999 league goal in their history as they look to become the first side to break the 7,000 mark.
Wolves dominated proceedings in the second half with Ganea and Naylor seeing efforts fly wide.
Leeds' hopes of getting anything from the game went up in smoke eight minutes from time when Walton was sent off for a second bookable offence after appearing to elbow Kenny Miller.
