Jimenez has scored 12 goals in 22 appearances this season

Raul Jimenez put Wolves on the brink of the Europa League knockout stages as his injury-time strike secured victory against Slovan Bratislava at Molineux.

The game looked to be heading towards a stalemate after Bratislava goalkeeper Dominik Greif kept out Ruben Neves’ penalty early in the second half.

However, Jimenez headed in Adama Traore’s cross to take the points.

Wolves are second in Group K with nine points, five ahead of Bratislava in third with just two games remaining.

The winning goal come in the second of 12 minutes of injury time, which was as a result of a lengthy period of treatment for Bratislava’s Kenan Bajric, who had been caught by Jimenez’s boot when he attempted an overhead kick.

Bajric had to be taken off on a stretcher after appearing not to move while on the pitch but was reported to be conscious when he was assessed further by medical staff in the tunnel.
