Southampton 0-1 Wolves
by Our Sports Desk
RAUL JIMENEZ conjured a moment of magic to claim his first goal since suffering a career-threatening fractured skull and earn Wolves a 1-0 Premier League victory at winless Southampton.
The Mexico striker — sporting protective head gear following his sickening clash with former Arsenal defender David Luiz last November — emphatically ended a 336-day wait to hit the net after waltzing through Saints’ defence in the 61st minute.
He twice beat Southampton defender Jan Bednarek, as well as leaving Mohammed Salisu on his backside, en route to calmly slotting beyond home goalkeeper Alex McCarthy in front of a packed away end.
Jimenez feared he would never play again in the aftermath of his horrific head injury at the Ashburton Grove almost 10 months ago and only returned to the field at the start of this campaign.
His milestone strike was a rare piece of quality during a largely forgettable affair — the 250th top-flight fixture staged at St Mary’s — and secured Wolves only a second success of the campaign under new boss Bruno Lage.
Defeat for Southampton leaves them eight games without a win dating back to last season and three successive outings without finding the net.
