Blackpool 0 Wolverhampton Wanderers 0
A stunning Wayne Hennessey save earned a valuable point for Wolves to help ease the pressure on manager Mick McCathy.
Hennessey did brilliantly to tip Gary Taylor-Fletcher's 25-yard screamer on to the bar on 64 minutes.
Barely a minute later Sylvain Ebanks-Blake came within a post-width of snatching the three points for the visitors when his shot slammed against the post and rebounded to safety.
The draw - Wolves' first point in three matches - leaves them marooned in 12th position, four points off the play-off pack.
And McCarthy - who brought in George Elokobi and Gary Breen into the starting lineup - was simply happy to grab a point after two heavy defeats.
He said: "That is a good point. Some people will say we should be coming here and winning, but Blackpool are a good side. I'm not
bothered if we are one, two, three points off the play-offs - it will matter at the end of April.
"We have conceded seven goals in two games and it was important we stopped the rot."
The game started at a frenetic pace and tricky winger Wes Hoolahan should have tested Hennessey when well placed after only two minutes while Ebanks-Blake just failed to gather Andy Keogh's defence-splitting pass with the home defence all at sea.
But it was Simon Grayson's side who came closest to opening the deadlock on nine minutes.
Paul Dickov, who scored twice on his full debut at Hull at the weekend, curled in a teasing cross across the six-yard box which the lunging Taylor-Fletcher missed by the width of an extra layer of boot polish.
Wolves first real serious attack arrived on 18 minutes. Matt Jarvis swung over a quickly taken free kick which caused havoc in the penalty area but the Seasiders managed to block goal-bound headers from Kevin Kyle and Keogh.
Ben Burgess finally warmed Hennessey's hands with a well-struck volley on 33 minutes before Jarvis was allowed to turn by the backtracking Michael Jackson only to hammer his shot wide.
As the clock mercifully ticked down to the break, Keogh's tame diving header was easily clutched by Paul Rachubka.
The second half started as the first-half ended - disjointed and lacklustre. There were shouts for a penalty when Ebanks-Blake went down under Ian Evatt's challenge as he rose to met a fine Kyle right-wing cross but the pleas fell on deaf ears.
Kyle then came closest to ending the stalemate but his powerful 62nd-minute header was taken at the second attempt by Rachubka.
But barely two minutes later, only a combination of Hennessey and the woodwork prevented Blackpool taking the lead.
Taylor-Fletcher fashioned himself some room on the corner of the area to smash a stunning shot which Hennesey did brilliantly to tip on to the bar and behind.
Almost immediately, the post at the other end was left shaking when Ebanks-Blake dispossessed Jackson only to see his snapshot cannon back off the near post.
After an hour of lifelessness, the fuse had finally been lit.
Another Wolves penalty appeal - this time for a suspected handball - was waved away with 12 minutes left and then Kyle, who had the beating of Jackson all night, glanced a header narrowly wide when unmarked.
If Kyle could have opened the scoring, Keogh really should have done with only seven minutes left.
The in-form Irishman latched on to a ricochet 12 yards out but lifted his shot way over the bar - and into the car park behind the goal - with only Rachubka to beat.
