Wolves midfielder Adlene Guedioura made his first appearance in seven months for the home Barclays Premier League clash with Everton.
The Algerian international suffered a broken leg against Aston Villa in September but has come through two reserve games unscathed in the past week.
Guedioura replaced Nenad Milijas while Wolves boss Mick McCarthy also brought in record signing Steven Fletcher at the expense of Adam Hammill.
Everton manager David Moyes handed a first Premier League start to French midfielder Magaye Gueye.
The 20-year-old replaced Seamus Coleman, who sustained an ankle problem during last weekend’s home draw with Villa.
