Wolves frustrated by resolute Burnley

Wolves were frustrated in their bid to keep pace with the top four as they were held to a goalless draw by Burnley at Molineux.

Winger Adama Traore, making his first start since 23 October, came closest when he hit the visitors on the break in the first-half and struck the underside of the bar from the edge of the area.

The Spaniard, who has yet to score in 14 appearances this season, had an effort touched around the post in the second half by Nick Pope, but that was Wolves' only effort on target in a drab period.

South Korean loanee Hwang Hee-chan also had an effort deflected wide from outside the area.

Third-bottom Burnley, who have now drawn five of their last seven games, were resolute in defence but offered little going forward.

It took until the 79th minute for them to have a shot on target when Dwight McNeil's effort was saved at the near post.
