The Premier League club are in European competition for the first time since the 1980/81 season.

A Europa League draw had seen Wolves pitted against the winners between Crusaders and Tórshavn from the Faroe Islands.

The Northern Irish side won 3-2 away from home on Thursday to secure a 5-2 aggregate win and head through.

Nuno Espírito Santo’s players will host Crusaders on Thursday 25 August before playing the return leg in Belfast a week later.

The winners of this tie will still have two rounds between them and the group stage of the competition.
