Wolves manager Dean Saunders admitted he is "devastated" after his team fell to a 2-1 npower Championship defeat against 10-man Burnley.
They are now three points adrift of safety ahead of next Saturday's final game of the season at Brighton.

Burnley played the final 25 minutes with 10 men after Michael Duff was dismissed after collecting two yellow cards.
The result sparked a pitch invasion by angry fans and a protest outside the ground.
Saunders, who replaced Stale Solbakken in January, said: "I am devastated.
"We should never be in the position that we are in. We have got ourselves in a terrible position.
"We are not dead yet, obviously it is stacked up against us but stranger things have happened."
Burnley manager Sean Dyche said: "I am very pleased.
"There were some very good individual performances and obviously I was very pleased tactically with how we managed the game out."
