Wolves v Slovan Bratislava: Matt Doherty expected to play

Slovan Bratislava goalkeeper Dominik Greif appeared to have Wolves number on Thursday night as he put on a spectacular six-save performance through 90 minutes.

"We combined well and dominated against a good team, they are an organised team".

Jimenez scored the victor in the second minute of added time to take Wolves to the brink of the last 32 but had looked particularly distressed as Bajric was receiving attention. If you allow space to them then it is hard.

"We want to play, perform, we are back at Molineux and want to perform well".

Greif had saved a deflected Joao Moutinho drive and beat away a Ruben Neves penalty but he couldn't stop Jimenez heading in Adam Traore's injury-time cross.

It kept Santo's team in second spot in Group K, a point behind Braga, who they travel to Portugal to play next, and extended their lead over third-placed Slovan to five points.

Greif continued to frustrate Wolves and he was at it again on the hour, this time palming away Matt Doherty's close-range flick after the full-back's clever run was picked out by Moutinho's inch-perfect lofted pass.

"We are aware of these three points but the important thing is to stay focused, we can't think about 'maybe we'll win three points", he said.

Bajric was caught as Jimenez attempted an overhead kick late in the game.

"It is hard for all of us", Jimenez told BT Sport after the game.

Slovan coach Jan Kozak said the injury was "quite serious", with a spokesman adding that Bajric was "conscious" after the game.
