Relegated Wolves produced an astonishing recovery from 3-0 and 4-1 down to claim the most unlikely of draws at Swansea in the Barclays Premier League this afternoon.
Things looked grim for Terry Connor's side as Andrea Orlandi struck in the first minute before Joe Allen and Nathan Dyer extended Swansea's lead before the 15-minute mark.
But the visitors rallied as Steven Fletcher and Matt Jarvis pulled goals back either side of Danny Graham scoring Swansea's fourth, before second-half strikes from David Edwards and the outstanding Jarvis capped a breathless contest and secured a point.
The draw secured Swansea's Premier League status, but manager Brendan Rodgers will not have been impressed with the way his side squandered the advantage they built during an opening where Wolves' season looked set to hit a new low.
And the watching Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson would hardly have seen anything to suggest Swansea will pose his side a threat at Old Trafford next weekend such was their defensive capitulation.
But anything other than a comfortable home win seemed unlikely when Wolves keeper Dorus de Vries, back at his former club, had to pick the ball out of his net twice in the opening four minutes.
Steven Caulker and Leon Britton built the play from the back for the hosts and Scott Sinclair's cross located Orlandi in acres of space for the Spaniard to find the net as his header looped over the keeper after just 25 seconds.
The hosts then doubled the lead with less than four minutes on the clock as Wolves were torn apart.
Graham and Gylfi Sigurdsson linked well to free Allen and the midfielder's shot took a deflection off Richard Stearman to leave De Vries with no chance.
Wolves had been carved open with worrying ease for the opening two goals and things rapidly got worse for Connor's side as a third arrived in the 15th minute.
