Wolves' wait to find out whether the Europa League tie at Slovan Bratislava will be open to fans is still ongoing.

Supporters have been advised not to make travel arrangements for the October 24 tie as a Uefa sanction against the Slovakian club means the game is currently set to be played behind closed doors.

However, the decision is not yet set in stone, with the Sky Blues having submitted an appeal.

A date has not been set for the hearing, but it is expected to take place at the beginning of October.

The Express & Star approached Uefa for a statement, and they said: "Slovan Bratislava is currently appealing a disciplinary decision that, if the appeal fails, would lead to the home match against Wolves on 24 October being played behind closed doors.

"Uefa cannot anticipate the outcome of the appeal and will announce the decision as soon as possible."

So, there is hope, but it remains best to avoid booking flights and hotels for now.
