​Wolves travel to Slovakia to face Slovan Bratislava in the Europa League on Thursday, in what could be a difficult fixture for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side. 

The Wanderers are enjoying a excellent run of kind, unbeaten in their final six games in all competitions, lately rescuing a point at house against Southampton.

Slovan Bratislava sit prime of the Slovak Super Liga and also lead Group K in the Europa League, so travelling to the Slovakian capital will be a hard ask for the Midlands side.

Raul Jimenez

Wolves began poorly in the league but have considering the fact that picked up their kind, leaving them 13th, 3 points behind sixth. They will hope their win at Besiktas final time out in this competition will help kick-commence their European campaign as well, as they at the moment sit third in the group.

A win for the Slovakian side would place them four points above the Black Nation side, but a Wolves victory would send them above Bratislava, so it really is all to play for in Eastern Europe.

Here’s 90min’s preview of the game.

Group News

David Strelec is out for the hosts with a fractured leg, but other than that the Slovaks have a clean bill of well being.

Diogo Jota

As for Wolves, Jota made his return from injury against ​Southampton, and should really be handed a recall in attack.

Ruben Neves and Romain Saiss are doubts with ankle and hamstring injuries respectively, Matt Doherty should really come back into the group at proper wing-back, though Jesus Vallejo is in line to play on the proper-hand side of a back 3 if Ryan Bennett does not shake off an injury which led to his early substitution in the Southampton daw.
