Wolves travel to face Armenian side Pyunik in the Europa League next week.

Wolves captain Conor Coady admits the squad still cannot afford to think about the Premier League yet.

The skipper remains focused on the Europa League after Thursday's 4-1 win over Crusaders sent Wolves through to the third qualifying round 6-1 on aggregate.

It booked them a 6,370-mile round trip to face Armenian side Pyunik next week and they will face them just three days before their Premier League opener at Leicester on August 11.

Coady told the club's official site: "Our minds are on Armenia now, it's as simple as that, because we need to go there and put in a good performance away from home.

"It's a European tie and one we're looking forward to – that's why we wanted to qualify for the Europa League, to have ties like this, so we're preparing for that.

"But we know what's coming next Sunday, it's the start of the Premier League season, which we know how tough it's going to be, but we need to make sure we do next week right to prepare the right way."

Raul Jimenez scored twice as Wolves came from behind in Belfast after Ryan Bennett's early own goal.

Bennett netted at the right end between Jimenez's two strikes before Jordan Forsythe's own goal made it 4-1 in the second half.

"We've done it right, done it well, and we used it as a game to prepare for what's coming next week as well, but we've also got the job done because we always knew it would be a tough game," Coady added.

"We knew the first 15 were going to be hard as we knew they were going to come out, try to press us and get the ball in the box to the big lad that they had up front, and that's what they've done, and they got the goal off it."
