Glenn Hoddle's first game in charge saw Wolves look second-best at Watford, but still come out with a point.
Hoddle's arrival at pitch-side brought a Wolves goal
It looked bad for Hoddle in the fourth minute, when Heidar Helguson fired the Hornets ahead with a 12-yard strike.
Hoddle came down to pitch-side after 35 minutes, just in time to see Seyi George Olofinjana score from close range after a cross from Keith Andrews.
Wolves goalkeeper Michael Oakes made several important saves to keep the scores level.
Watford manager Ray Lewington:
"I was really pleased to get to
half-time with the score still at 1-1. We started well and scored, but then I thought Wolves played particularly
well, and we had trouble dealing with the lad (Olofinjana) who plays just behind
the front two.
"We debated at half-time whether to change or be positive, and we decided to
carry on the way we were, and I thought Wolves faded a bit in the second half."
Wolves boss Glenn Hoddle:
"It's great to be back and prepare a team for a match and come out and have
some banter and get some stick from the fans.
"I thought we played extremely well up until half-time, particularly
after we equalised, and really, if we'd got our noses in front then, we might
have gone on to win the game."
