Wolves and Southampton played out a goalless draw which did little to enhance either side's promotion hopes.
Saints had the best of the first half, with Brett Ormerod twice denied by keeper Stefan Postma when through.
Wolves improved after the break, with Saints keeper Antti Niemi pulling off stunning saves from George Ndah's header and Tom Huddlestone's shot.
Substitute Leon Clarke almost broke the deadlock for Wolves with a volley against the bar.
Southampton boss Harry Redknapp:
"I've not seen Sheffield United yet but I've not seen anybody in this league better than us," said Redknapp after the 0-0 draw with Wolves.
"We're short of goals, it's as simple as that. My leading scorer has got four and that's Nigel Quashie, the best in the division. That says it all.
"We were far the better team in the first half but a draw is fair enough."
Wolves boss Glenn Hoddle:
"We weren't out of the blocks very quickly. I asked for and got for a better performance in the second half and felt we got one.
"But it was a frustrating day all round, made more so by the referee. It wasn't just against us, but both sides.
"Southampton and ourselves both need a bit of magic dust, which is a bit of luck at the right time."
