Wolves hung on to claim a 2-1 win and three potentially crucial points in their battle against Barclays Premier League relegation at Turf Moor.
Matt Jarvis took advantage of a short Tyrone Mears back pass to put the visitors ahead in the 26th minute and a Clarke Carlisle own goal almost saw them home.
But a 73rd-minute header from substitute Steven Thompson gave the home side hope with Wolves forced into desperate defending to preserve their points.
