Gary Bowyer signed off from his stint as Blackburn caretaker boss with a point while Wolves' new era under Dean Saunders started with a share of the spoils after an entertaining 1-1 draw at Molineux.
Michael Appleton's switch from Blackpool to Lancashire rivals Rovers on a two-and-a-half-year deal was finally confirmed just two hours prior to kick-off, meaning he was not in attendance in the Black Country and instead watched the televised fixture.
Bowyer, with three wins from his three previous games at the helm, looked set to boast a 100 per cent record after Jordan Rhodes' contentious first-half penalty - his 14th goal in Rovers colours - handed the visitors the lead. But Roger Johnson, with only his second goal for Wanderers, nodded home in the 74th minute to level matters.
