Commentary

Thank you for joining our coverage, we hope you enjoyed the game! Until next time, goodbye!
Wolves host Burnley next, while Sheffield United host Brighton and Hove Albion.
There goes the full-time whistle! Sheffield United's relegation from the Premier League is confirmed with six matches still to be played, the joint-earliest in the competition's history. In a cagey affair, Traore's quality run and cross for Willian Jose to convert from close range proved the difference, with the Blades failing to really test Patricio in the Wolves goal. It finishes 1-0 to Wolves!
90' + 4' FULL-TIME: WOLVES 1-0 SHEFFIELD UNITED
90' + 2' BLOCK! Sheffield United have everyone forward and they get caught on the counter again by Traore's pace in behind, but the visitors just about scramble back and the Wolves forward's shot is blocked away!
90' WIDE! Traore is played into acres of space in behind and gets to the edge of the box before swiping at goal, but he snatches at his shot as he's closed down and skews it well wide of the target!
88' If the scoreline remains the same, Sheffield United will be relegated with six games remaining - the joint-earliest relegation from the Premier League, along with Huddersfield in 2018-19, Derby in 2007-08 and Ipswich in 1994-95.
86' SAVE! Substitute Silva races down the right and into the box before going for goal from a tight angle, but he doesn't catch it with any conviction and Ramsdale holds on!
J. Bogle
E. Ampadu
83' Heckingbottom makes a late change now, replacing Ampadu with Bogle for the final few minutes.
83' SAVE! How have Wolves not scored?! Moutinho's free-kick into the box takes a deflection and drops perfectly for Saiss six yards out, but Ramsdale somehow gets out to make a point-blank save! 
E. Stevens
Yellow Card
82' Stevens now goes into the book for a poor challenge on the lively Traore out wide.
81' SAVE! Huge chance for Sheffield United! Stevens feeds Mousset in behind and the striker checks back at the byline before laying it across goal for Norwood to strike, but Patricio keeps it out and Burke's effort from the rebound is blocked away!
79' NO PENALTY! A cross from the right comes in towards the back post where Stevens backs into Semedo and goes down. There's no push from the Wolves defender and the referee is rightly not interested in awarding a penalty.
Fábio Silva
Willian José
77' Nuno responds with a change of his own, swapping goalscorer Willian Jose for Silva up front.
O. Burke
R. Brewster
75' Brewster is the next to make way, with Burke providing fresh legs up front for the final 15 minutes of normal time.
L. Mousset
B. Osborn
75' Heckingbottom makes a double-change now as he looks for an equalising goal. Osborn is the first to go off, with an extra striker in Mousset coming on.
Vitinha
Daniel Podence
72' Podence, having just been booked, is now replaced, with Vitinha coming on for him.
Daniel Podence
Yellow Card
71' Podence is the first Wolves player to go into the book now, as he's penalised for his challenge on Brewster.
69' SAVE! The Blades work it sharply down the left and Stevens is fed on the edge of the box with Dendoncker for company. The left wing-back takes a clever touch to beat his marker and gets into the area before lashing at goal, but Patricio tips it over the bar with a fingertip save!
67' Wolves have been forced to retreat into their own third and are defending in an organised shape as Sheffield United zip the ball around them. The Blades have nothing to lose now.
65' Sheffield United win a corner and pile men into the box, but can't test Patricio from the set-piece. The visitors are certainly committing bodies forward now.
63' Sheffield United are attacking with more purpose now. If they want to stave off relegation for another week, they need a goal.
61' That strike was Willian Jose's first goal for Wolves in his 13th appearance in all competitions, having been denied by VAR last week against Fulham.
Adama Traoré
Assist
60' Traore's directness and skill on the ball saw him work a crossing angle on the right and his low delivery was excellent, allowing Willian Jose to convert from close range.
Willian José
Goal
60' GOAL!!! WOLVES TAKE THE LEAD!! Traore races down the right and jinks into space before fizzing a low cross into the six-yard box that Willian Jose turns home! Relegation looms for Sheffield United now. It's 1-0 to Wolves!
58' BLOCK! Brewster gets down the right and cuts the ball back to the edge of the box for Stevens, who tries to steer a shot at goal but sees it blocked away!
56' Fleck commits two fouls in as many minutes as Sheffield United's tactic of disrupting Wolves' rhythm continues.
54' Sheffield United (25) and Wolves (24) have failed to score in the first half of more different Premier League games than any other sides this season. Perhaps one or both with trouble the scoresheet in what remains of the second half.
52' Traore chases a hopeful ball in behind but Ramsdale is quick off his line and comes well out of his box to sweep up before giving the ball to Norwood and heading back to his goal-line.
50' Sheffield United pepper the Wolves box with crosses from the left, but nothing quite falls for them in the middle and the hosts eventually hack clear.
48' Wolves start the half on the front foot and work it around the edge of the box before Podence slips Semedo in towards the byline to cross, but Ramsdale is there to hold on!
46' We're back underway for the second half!
Sheffield United may be happy to keep the game cagey and hope to nick a goal, but Nuno surely cannot be happy with his side's failure to truly test the defence of a team that have collected just 14 points from 31 games so far this season. Wolves have little to play for at this stage, with relegation and Europe both unlikely, but a better showing will still be expected from them in the second half.
There goes the half-time whistle! It's been a cagey half from both sides with clear-cut chances at a premium. The closest either side came to scoring was when the ball deflected goalwards off Boly following a corner, only for Norwood to head off the line via the bar. Ait-Nouri escaped without punishment for a poor challenge on Brewster, but there was no intervention from the VAR. It's 0-0 at the break.
45' + 1' HALF-TIME: WOLVES 0-0 SHEFFIELD UNITED
44' Wolves win a corner but can't capitalise, before Sheffield United counter and Osborn wins a free-kick in a dangerous area, but that also comes to nothing.
42' All of Wolves' earlier momentum has been lost and the tempo of the game has dropped significantly. Both sides seem like they're simply waiting for the half-time whistle.
40' Wolves are probing and looking for openings, but Sheffield United are doing their utmost to prevent them from getting into a rhythm and are regularly committing fouls to do so.
38' Yet another free-kick is awarded, with Brewster again penalised for a challenge on Podence. The number of stoppages is disrupting the flow of the match and it's a scrappy affair at the moment.
R. Brewster
Yellow Card
36' There's a coming-together between Brewster and Ait-Nouri as the latter tries to win the ball and stands on the former's foot, but is simultaneously taken out by the Sheffield United striker. Both players are down and in pain. Only Brewster goes into the book, however, with the Wolves left-back somewhat fortunate to escape serious disciplinary action. The VAR has not intervened.
33' SAVE! Traore twists and turns on the edge of the box before squaring to Ait-Nouri, who cuts inside onto his weaker right foot and lashes a shot at goal, but Ramsdale palms it up into the air and claims at the second time of asking.
31' OVER! Moutinho lofts the ball into the box from midfield and Traore heads it back to Podence, who arrives just inside the area and tries to volley at goal, but he lashes it over the bar!
29' Wolves are looking threatening and have certainly been the dominant side over the last 10 minutes but without creating enough of note.
27' Wolves try to work a slick attack but Moutinho's backheel is a little too intricate and ends up giving the ball away. 
25' SAVE! Wolves don't get the ball clear and it pops out to Brewster, who takes a touch and drives to the edge of the box before lashing at goal, but it takes a deflection on the way through and Patricio can hold on in the bottom-left corner.
23' WIDE! Sheffield United work the ball to Fleck on the edge of the box and the midfielder tries to lash one into the top-left corner, but he fires just wide!
20' OFF THE LINE! Ait-Nouri swings a corner into the middle and Willian Jose chests it down for Boly. Egan intervenes and attempts to clear the ball but strikes it off Boly and back towards his own goal, where a combination of Norwood and the bar keep it from crossing the line!
19' Wolves win a corner off Norwood and then another off Baldock. They're starting to pile on the pressure.
17' Neither side has been able to dominate the ball for an extended spell yet. Both look most threatening in transition rather than in possession.
15' Semedo fouls Fleck out wide, but Sheffield United are unable to make the most of the set-piece opportunity.
13' Sheffield United are back on the ball and are attempting to threaten by getting the ball very wide and crossing into the middle, but the approach is yet to truly test the Wolves defence.
11' The ball strikes the referee despite his best efforts to get out of the way and the ball is returned to Sheffield United, who would have maintained possession if not for the deflection.
9' Wolves have settled on the ball now and are enjoying their first spell of possession so far, forcing Sheffield United to retreat into their own half.
7' BLOCK! Traore races into the box down the right and shoots from a tight angle, but Bryan slides in to block and Stevens then draws a foul.
5' Sheffield United have enjoyed plenty of the ball in the opening minutes of the game, but they're yet to create anything of note and Wolves look a threat on the counter.
3' Wolves break from a Sheffield United corner as Semedo surges forward on the counter before playing the ball in behind for Podence, but he can't quite get on the end of it.
1' We're underway at Molineux!
Sheffield United have scored a league-low 17 goals so far in the Premier League this season but have an expected goals (xG) total of 28.2, meaning they’ve scored roughly 11 goals fewer than expected. Only Fulham (12) have a bigger such difference this term.
Wolves are averaging 11.8 shots per game and just one goal per game in the Premier League this season – of their seven campaigns in the competition, they’ve only averaged lower for both in 2009-10 (11.5 shots, 0.8 goals).
Meanwhile, Sheffield United interim manager Paul Heckingbottom also makes two changes following a 3-0 defeat against Arsenal at Bramall Lane. Lundstram and Burke drop to the bench, with Bryan and Brewster replacing them. Sander Berge, Oli McBurnie, Jack Robinson, Jack O'Connell, Billy Sharp and Chris Basham are all out injured. 
Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo makes two enforced changes after his side beat Fulham 1-0 last time out. Pedro Neto and Ruben Neves miss out through injury, joining Jonny, Fernando Marcal and Raul Jimenez on the sidelines. Moutinho and Boly start in their places as Nuno continues with the 3-4-1-2 system used following Neto's injury at Craven Cottage, having started in a 4-2-3-1.
Sheffield United substitutes: Wes Foderingham, Kyron Gordon, Phil Jagielka, Zak Brunt, Jayden Bogle, Max Lowe, Oliver Burke, Lys Mousset, John Lundstram.
Sheffield United XI (3-5-2): Aaron Ramsdale; Ethan Ampadu, John Egan, Kean Bryan; George Baldock, John Fleck, Oliver Norwood, Ben Osborn, Enda Stevens; Rhian Brewster, David McGoldrick.
Wolves substitutes: Theo Corbeanu, Fabio Silva, Morgan Gibbs-White, Max Kilman, John Ruddy, Lewis Richards, Owen Otasowie, Vitinha, Ki-Jana Hoever.
Wolves XI (3-4-1-2): Rui Patricio; Roman Saiss, Conor Coady, Willy Boly; Nelson Semedo, Leander Dendoncker, Joao Moutinho, Rayan Ait-Nouri; Daniel Podence; Adama Traore, Willian Jose.
Defeat for Sheffield United tonight would mathematically confirm their relegation from the Premier League. The Blades are 19 points from safety and have just six more fixtures after tonight's game - a maximum of 18 points for them to collect. Wolves put a serious dent in Fulham's bid for survival last week and will hope for another positive result here as they aim for a comfortable mid-table finish.
