Steve Cotterill's Burnley remain unbeaten thanks to Robbie Blake's goal.Robbie Blake scored a superb solo goal to earn Burnley a well-deserved 1-1 draw against Wolves and maintain their unbeaten start to the season.
The Burnley skipper was in inspirational form as he made his 100th league appearance for the club and he struck to cancel out Shaun Newton's opener and leave Wolves still looking for their first win.
Burnley made a bright start and could have taken an early lead, but Wolves keeper Paul Jones was equal to Richard Chaplow's long range strike.
The visitors were then handed a goal against the run of play, when Frank Sinclair's poor back header left Newton in the clear and he lifted the ball past Danny Coyne and into the empty net.
But Burnley were level within nine minutes as Blake carried the ball past three Wolves defenders before sliding a low shot past Jones.
Blake tried his luck again in first half stoppage time as he attempted to catch Jones off guard with a free-kick, but the former Southampton keeper gathered the ball at the second attempt.
Steve Cotterill's side continued to have the better of things after the interval, but Ian Moore missed the target with a header from Mo Camara's cross and Micah Hyde lifted a shot over the bar.
More good work from former Wolves wing-back Camara set up another chance for Hyde but he could only find the side-netting, before Michael Duff teed up Blake, but he could only steer a low shot wide of the target.
