Wayne Hennessey´s late penalty save earned Wolves a share of the spoils as they held Coca-Cola Championship rivals West Brom to a point in a fiercely contested Black Country goalless derby at the Hawthorns.

The Wanderers goalkeeper dived low to his right in the 84th minute to deny Zoltan Gera from the spot to cap a stunning performance after Neill Collins had pulled Baggies substitute Craig Beattie´s shirt inside the area.

The Wales international had earlier pulled off another stunning stop to push Filipe Teixeira´s shot onto the post as Mick McCarthy´s side stubbornly held on for a deserved point, while Albion now lie five points behind leaders Watford.
