Wolverhampton Wanderers stopped a run of seven straight defeats with a 0-0 draw against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light Saturday but remain bottom of the Premier League table, eight points from safety.
Wolves beat Sunderland 2-1 at Molineux in December but were unable to complete the double over the Black Cats, though the result represents the first clean sheet for the visitors in 31 games.
The home side enjoyed a slight edge in the opening half with James McClean coming closest to breaking the deadlock but the winger shot into the side netting.
Wolves came into the game in the second half but the visitors failed to convert their chances including a Steven Fletcher header that was spectacularly saved by Simon Mignolet to ensure the points were shared.
