DERBY County were held to their first goalless draw in 24 games as Wolverhampton Wanderers continued their Pride Park dominance in a 0-0 stalemate on Saturday.
The Rams moved up a place in the Championship table with this point, but will be disappointed not to have made further ground after an even first half and a dominate performance after the break.
However, they could not find a way through, meaning that Wolves maintained their record of not having lost in Derby since a 2-0 defeat at the Baseball Ground in 1993.
There were positives for the hosts, not least among them the performance of full debutant Michael Hoganson, who rose to the occasion with some eye-catching passes and overlapping runs from left-back.
Jamie Ward was as lively and dangerous as ever, whether up front, where he started the match, or on the left, where he drifted in the second period, while substitute Michael Jacobs created several opportunities to win the game late on.
