Andraz Sporar

Andraz Sporar is patently the greatest threat to Wolves' backline ahead of their Europa League game against SK Slovan Bratislava.

The most expensive signing in the history of the Slovak Super Liga, and the club's top scorer last season with 34 goals in 36 appearances, Sporar is rewriting the boundaries within Slovakian football.

Already the league's top scorer this season with eight goals in just six games, he combines ruthless instinct with high visibility and awareness to form a complete forward that Wolves would be mistaken to underestimate.

His three goals so far in the Europa League, and goal and assist against Poland during the Euro 2020 qualifying campaign, has shown that he can perform on the biggest stage with a swagger, and he alone has the potential to cause one of the stories of the season, by firing Bratislava into the knockout rounds of the Europa League.

David Holman

Having recently broken into the Hungarian national side, scoring a goal on his debut as a substitute against Azerbaijan, David Holman seems to be taking the next step up in his career since leaving Hungary for Slovakia.


With four goals in four starts in the league this season, with a goal scored every 77 minutes on average, the play-maker has the technical ability to turn the outrageous into simplicity.

As an astute set-piece taker, an aspect of the game Wolves have struggled to defend under Nuno, he will surely cause Wolves' defence some issues should he be given the chance to deliver one of his deceptively drifting free-kicks.

On a night where Bratislava may need some magic to get a result, Holman could be the man to provide it.

While he was Bratislava's second top goal scorer last season, with 12 goals alongside 12 assists in 29 appearances behind the unmatched Sporar, Moha is yet to find form this year.

Admittedly, playing second fiddle to the dominance of Sporar must be no easy task, but he has done it with aplomb in the past, forming one half of the most fearsome strike partnership in the league as he finished as the league's third top goalscorer.

Just five starts this season perhaps isn't helping his form as he has scored just two goals domestically, but his emphatic last minute strike against Besiktas showed what he is truly capable of.

A player able to play in any position across the top line, Moha will adapt however Bratislava choose to line-up, and look for a return to his best against a resurgent Wolves.
