Wolves’ Leander Dendocker was onside when he nodded a rebound into the goal, but the 36th minute effort was ruled offside thanks to initial striker Raul Jimenez.
Doherty was the on the scene again, darting onto a partially-blocked shot and taking a touch before forcing Lukasz Fabianski into a point-blank save.

Saiss was gifted an opportunity to lash at goal, but Fabianski was again in fine form to parry the dipping shot.
Jonny Castro then hit a left-footed rocket that Fabianski saved for a corner, but Saiss headed the ensuing set piece beyond the reach of the Polish backstop.
Arnautovic left the game with help, unable to put weight on his right leg after a boot to his ankle.
And Fabianski nearly needed to be removed from the match after a hard coming-together with a sliding Doherty.
Jimenez then made it 2-0 when he connected with a low-crossed corner kick, and added to the advantage with a flick of Jota’s cross.
