Wolves boss Nuno delighted to see off Slovan Bratislava

Wolves boss Nuno was delighted with their 1-0 Europa League win over Slovan Bratislava.

Raul Jimenez struck in added time.

Despite Wolves extending their advantage over Slovan in the Group K table, which was made trickier after Ruben Neves' penalty was saved during an outstanding performance by visiting keeper Dominik Greif, the head coach felt there was still plenty for his players to improve on if they wish to make it into the knockout stages of the competition.

He said, “You look at all the game and we controlled it really well, we played good in the first-half and in the second-half there were too many chances and allowed Slovan chances to create counter-attacks, it was beginning to come apart.

“But fortunately, I think we deserved this win because the boys worked hard and the support of the fans until the end – it was a good moment for everybody.

“I wanted a lot of things from the game, some of them happened and others not, but the way we work we try to regroup for the next one."Raul Jimenez struck in added time."
