Lys Mousset of Sheffield Utd celebrates his goal at Molineux: Simon Bellis/Sportimage

United were handed the perfect start at Molineux when Lys Mousset opened the scoring in just the second minute.

The Blades then missed several chances to extend their lead and paid the price when Matt Doherty headed home from close range to equalise.

And although United missed the chance to leapfrog Spurs into fifth spot, they are now without a defeat in seven games in all and remain unbeaten away from Bramall Lane since promotion last season.

"This was always going to be a tough fixture and a tough place to come," said boss Wilder. "I'm delighted we've kept our away record going into early December and we're still unbeaten away from home, which is great in terms of attitude and gives us something to go forward with.

"But there is some disappointment because we should have scored another goal and gone on to score two or even three.

"Our start to both halves was terrific, the first half in particular obviously. We had chances to put the game to bed and we didn't take them.

"Wolves have some terrific players at the top end of the pitch, all over the pitch actually, and if you give them enough time and chances then they will hurt you and that's what happened. We paid the price for that.

"We tried to get after Wolves and kill the game off but the teams in this division are absolutely top drawer and you aren't always going to be able to do that."
