  • Torino 2-3 Wolves: Nuno's men take step towards Europa League group stage Torino 2-3 Wolves: Nuno's men take step towards Europa League group stage

    Wolves moved a step closer to reaching the group stage of the Europa League by winning 3-2 at Torino in the first leg of their play-off round clash.

    Bremer's own goal put Nuno Espirito Santo's side in front before half-time at the Olimpico Grande Torino on Thursday with Diogo Jota extending their advantage after the break.

    Lorenzo De Silvestri's header cut the deficit but Raul Jimenez struck in the 72nd minute to earn Wolves a potentially crucial third away goal, though Andrea Belotti's late penalty leaves the tie more balanced.

    Although they now face a tough task to qualify, Torino were close to opening the scoring in the 19th minute.

    Nicolas Nkoulou rose highest to meet Armando Izzo's right-wing cross, but his header clipped Rui Patricio's crossbar and Wolves then missed a good chance when Leander Dendoncker narrowly failed to hit the target from a typically precise Joao Moutinho centre.

    Crosses continued to provide the best chances and Wolves took the lead from another in the 43rd minute when an inswinging Moutinho cross was flicked in at the back post by helpless defender Bremer.

    Wolves doubled their lead in the 59th minute thanks to more fine wing work, Adama Traore doing brilliantly on the right to pull a low cross back for Jota to finish, but Torino swiftly hit back.

    Cristian Ansaldi whipped the ball in from the left and De Silvestri arrived to power home a header from close range.

    Jimenez restored Wolves' two-goal cushion, though. The Mexico striker collected possession midway in Torino's half and burst away from a series of challenges before slotting a calm low finish past goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu.

    Walter Mazzarri's Torino visit Molineux next Thursday with renewed hope thanks to Belotti's 89th minute penalty, the striker converting after he was felled by Ruben Vinagre, while Rui Patricio had to save well from Belotti in added time.

  • Southampton goalkeeper Forster returns to Celtic on loan Southampton goalkeeper Forster returns to Celtic on loan

    Celtic have signed their former goalkeeper Fraser Forster on loan from Southampton.

    Forster played for the Glasgow giants between 2011 and 2014, initially on loan from Newcastle United, before leaving for the Saints.

    The 31-year-old initially thrived at St. Mary's but lost the gloves during the 2018-19 campaign.

    With Angus Gunn now installed as Southampton's number one, Forster has been allowed to rejoin Celtic on a season-long loan.

    The goalkeeper, who has six England caps, will wear the number 67 during his time back at Celtic Park.

    "I'm absolutely delighted to be here, it feels like I'm coming home and I'm buzzing to be back at this great club," Forster told Celtic's official website.

    "Obviously, I know what the number 67 means to this great club. It’s an honour to wear the shirt and an even bigger honour to wear this number.

    "I loved my time here before and I felt like it was the right number for me, I'm really proud to wear it, and I want to do my absolute best for this club.

    "The gaffer [Neil Lennon] has always been brilliant with me, and when the opportunity came up to come back and work with him again, it was one that was too good to turn down."
