Bramall Lane saw its heroes go ahead 1-0 through Cameron Archer only to require Oliver Norwood's VAR-awarded stoppage-time penalty to deliver a 2-1 win and improve the last-place Blades' season point total to four.
All the goals came late, as Archer's 72nd-minute goal was matched by an 89th-minute Jean Ricner-Bellegarde equalizer. VAR then spotted Fabio Silva's foul on Blades veteran George Baldock, and Norwood converted in the 10th minute of stoppage.
Wolves entered the game in terrific form and few would've suspected a loss like this, even away from home. Gary O'Neil's men had 62 percent of the ball but will not get a point to show for it, as a first game without Pedro Neto saw the team look less dangerous.
Wolves sit 13th with 12 points.
Sheffield United vs Wolves final score: 2-1
Goals: Archer (72'), Bellegarde (89'), Norwood (90'+10)

Focus on Sheffield United
Heckingbottom's not just undermanned, he's been dealing with a huge batch of injuries. Oli McBurnie's status is the most interesting of the bunch in terms of what the Blades will think they need to do to top Wolves.
OUT: John Egan (ankle), Anel Ahmedhodzic (thigh), Chris Basham (ankle), William Osula (other), Tom Davies (thigh), Daniel Jebbison (groin), Rhys Norrington-Davies (thigh), Max Lowe (ankle) | QUESTIONABLE: Oliver McBurnie (groin).
Focus on Wolves
The Neto injury could be huge, as O'Neil has been very smart about changing his attacking patterns but has not had to do so without his most creative sparkplug. Matheus Cunha and Hee-chan Hwang, however, might just have enough for this one.
OUT: Hugo Bueno (hamstring), Joseph Hodge (shoulder), Pedro Neto (thigh) | QUESTIONABLE: Jean-Ricner Bellegarde (fitness)
