Sheff Utd 3-3 Wolves
Joleon Lescott scored with three minutes left to earn Wolves a draw.

Seyi George Olofinjana put Wolves ahead, converting Mark Clyde's centre, before Leigh Bromby equalised with a stunning volley.

Carl Cort then scored for Wolves from close range but three minutes later Paul Thirwell equalised after a dangerous cross from Andy Liddell.

Shaw converted another cross from Liddell with minutes left but Lescott then bundled home Cort's flick.

  • Sheffield United manager Neil Warnock
    "From a neutral point of view, I suppose it was a great game - but it was terrible to concede a goal late on.

    "I can't fault the lads for the quality of the goals and the effort. Some of the play was fantastic, but if you give goals away like we have, you can't win games.

    "There was some fabulous play and the players wanted to play, they were all positive - nobody thought about a point."

  • Wolves caretaker-manager Stuart Gray
    "Overall I thought we had the better chances in the game and when you score three goals away from home you expect to win the game.

    "I'm disappointed with the defending. Sometimes it's the second ball you have to defend and unfortunately on a couple of occasions we didn't do that.

    "All credit to the boys because they stuck at it and deserved a draw, maybe even a win."
