Wolves 0-0 Sheff Utd
Loan signing Gary Speed made his debut for Sheffield United in the lacklustre goalless draw with Wolves at Molineux.

Speed and Wolverhampton's Andrew Keogh both spurned chances in a scrappy opening which saw both teams struggling to retain possession.

Blades midfielder Lee Hendrie began to make his presence felt and he had a shot blocked by keeper Wayne Hennessey.

Rob Hulse blasted over for the visitors before Wolves piled forward late on to try and find a winner.

  • Wolves manager Mick McCarthy on the supporters signing "you don't know what you're doing":
    "I think I do know what I'm doing," said McCarthy, who faced chants to the contrary from the Molineux crowd.

    "I'd sooner they gave me the abuse and not the players - my players are in it with me.

    "It is frustrating for me and the players - they are not enjoying not winning games."

  • Sheffield United manager Bryan Robson:
    "It was a good, workman-like performance. A point here is not bad.

    "When you play a 4-5-1 or 4-3-3 we've done quite well in those games, but when I've played 4-4-2 away from home people have been creating a lot of chances against us.

    "We had a couple of situations when we should have done better but overall we have got to be pleased after not having any breaks over the last few games."
