On Monday, a handful of missed chances meant Wolves could only leave the Amex Stadium with a point.

They had been hoping to win four successive top-flight matches for the first time since January 1972, when they were managed by Bill McGarry.

Still, the visitors stretched their unbeaten run to six matches across all competitions.

Wolves are on the up, 11th in the Premier League table, and only outside of the top 10 on goal difference.

After full-time, manager Gary O'Neil reminded TNT Sports "when I came in, I was tasked with keeping the team in the league."

Such is Wolves' recent run that feels like a very long time ago.

Attention now turns to the FA Cup. The big question is, can Wolves bring their form to Sunday's Black Country derby in the fourth round?

The Molineux side will face West Brom for the first time in front of supporters since 2012 in their next match on 28 January (11:45 GMT kick-off).

It'll be huge. The countdown starts now.
