Southampton 0 Wolverhampton Wanderers 0
Wolverhampton Wanderers still have not won at St Mary's - and their last win in this corner of the South Coast was way back in April 1980 when Andy Gray was starring for them in the air, not on the air for Sky.
But, on a ground where they have never even so much as scored in five attempts, Wolves went agonisingly close to beating their bogey team.
Had it not been for four fine second-half saves from his old Sunderland keeper Kelvin Davis, then Mick McCarthy would have avenged that infamous 6-0 home defeat to the Saints at Molineux in March and become the first Wolves manager to return from Hampshire with all three points.
Instead, McCarthy had to settle for the one point which at least allowed Wolves to return to the top six after briefly being nudged out of the play-off spots by Barnsley's win on Monday night.
Wolves made an encouragingly bright start in front of a once atmospheric, but now demoralisingly half-empty ground where the only 'result' they have enjoyed in four visits was a 0-0 draw here on the first day two seasons ago.
But Saints, hardly expected to be much of an attacking force with Christian Dailly in midfield and half their squad fearing for their future in January, were already just starting to wake up when they were given a helping hand by Wolves.
An uncharacteristic mistake by Jody Craddock, underhitting a backward header, forced Darren Ward into a hurried clearance which flew straight at Wolves keeper Wayne Hennessey, who was forced to save.
And referee Darren Deadman cruelly adjudged it a backpass, suddenly transporting the home side into an attacking situation eight yards out that they could not have dreamt of seconds earlier. But, with the entire Wolves team lined up on the line like an 11-man rugby pack waiting to scrum down, the wall did its job and Rudi Skacel's free-kick was charged down.
That escape lifted Wolves into shading the rest of the half, only to discover that they had left the shooting boots behind.
From Stephen Ward's cross following an Andy Keogh break, Michael Kightly blazed badly over, while the recalled Eastwood and right back Kevin Foley were also both just off target.
And, when Keogh and Kightly combined
effectively, Stephen Ward's header was blocked.
Saints threatened at the start of the second half, Grzegorz Rasiak forcing Hennessey to dive to his left to save, while John Viafara's charge down the middle was ended when his shot flew high and wide of the angle.
And it needed a great challenge by Craddock to clear the danger when one aerial move from the home side finally looked to have picked the lock.
That inspired Wolves into their best spell of the evening as Davis was called upon to make three fine saves in quick succession.
First, he denied Kightly at close quarters before tipping over Seyi Olofinjana's dipping shot with the outside of his right foot after a neat Irish link-up between Ward and Keogh. And possibly his best of the three was going low to his right to turn aside Eastwood's right-foot shot.
Even when a tired Kightly had departed the fray for the second game running, substitute Jay Bothroyd then almost conjured up a chance to win it with a great turn in the box, only for the alert Davisto block his shot too.
But Darren Potter, also arrived from the bench, was over with the rebound. And, when Hennessey went full length to save, an unlikely effort from Dailly, another important away point was secured. n Chris Iwelumo scored a last-gasp winner for the second successive game to hand Charlton victory and end high-flying Bristol City's unbeaten home record in the Coca-Cola Championship.
Iwelumo, whose injury-time goal against Southampton at the weekend gave the Addicks their first league win in five matches, rose to head home Andy Reid's cross in the 90th minute for his sixth goal of the season.
It was the least that Alan Pardew's side deserved after they dominated proceedings at Ashton Gate.
But it looked like the Robins would hold on for a point thanks to the heroics of goalkeeper Adriano Basso.
Basso underlined his growing reputation with four first-half saves of note - particularly to deny Iwelumo and Addicks captain Reid - before he kept out an effort from Danny Mills after the break.
