Match ends, Wolverhampton Wanderers 0, Charlton Athletic 0.
Guy Luzon's first game as Charlton head coach ended in a hard-fought goalless draw against play-off hopefuls Wolves.
Wolves, who had won five of their last six league games, had the better of first half, but Charlton's Callum Harriott forced Carl Ikeme into a save.
The visitors looked dangerous on the break, and Ikeme was again on hand to turn away Tony Watt's strike.
Benik Afobe almost headed a late Wolves winner and Nouha Dicko also had an injury-time penalty appeal waved away.
Despite moving up to seventh in the league, Kenny Jackett's Wolves fell three points behind the play-off places,
Luzon, meanwhile, saw his new side end a three-game losing run, having missed last week's 5-0 demolition at Watford because of work permit problems.
|Guzon's tough new job|
|Charlton's last victory came at Reading in the Championship on 8 November.|
The Israeli set his stall out to frustrate, using two banks of four and restricting Wolves to long shots by Dave Edwards and Dominic Iorfa.
Despite the hosts having much of the ball, the Addicks came closest to a first-half goal when Johann Berg Gudmundsson's inswinging cross flashed just past the far post.
Jackett brought on Dicko and Scott Golbourne at half-time, but the visitors began the half stronger, with Harriott forcing a diving save from Ikeme.
Wolves were struggling for the killer final ball and Charlton were defending extremely well, epitomised by Morgan Fox's block on Rajiv van La Parra's side-foot volley.
The hosts upped the pressure late on and, after Afobe headed Golbourne's cross straight at debutant keeper Marko Dmitrovic, Dicko and Bikey both received yellow cards amid the subsequent melee.
