MILLWALL produced a heroic comeback from 3-0 down to salvage an unlikely point against Kenny Jackett's Wolves in an absorbing six-goal thriller.
Former Den boss Jackett was set to cause an upset on his old stomping ground as his side opened up what looked an unassailable lead with only 25 minutes remaining.
The visitors went in front before half time when Danny Batth scored from a corner and then two goals in four minutes after the break seemingly put the result beyond doubt.
First, Ethan Ebanks-Landell bundled in from close range after James Henry's set piece struck a post before Bakary Sako rifled in a free kick over the head of David Forde.
But Lee Gregory pulled one back with a composed low finish and then substitute Ricardo Fuller crashed in a half-volley to reduce the deficit to one.
And with three minutes remaining, sub Lee Martin fired a pass into the feet of Fuller, who span on the edge of the box before drilling inside the near post to spark wild celebrations.
That wasn't the end of the drama, however, as Shaun Williams was shown a straight red card in the eighth minute of stoppage time for tripping the goal-bound Lee Evans.
Millwall were unchanged from their 0-0 stalemate at Derby County before the international break, with Aiden O'Brien making only his second league start for the club.
The visitors, meanwhile, dropped Richard Stearman and Scott Goldbourne from their back four after a run of eight goals conceded in just three games.
As expected, Jackett received a standing ovation from the home crowd when he appeared on the touchline for the first time of the afternoon.
His side nearly fell behind in the fourth minute when Millwall won the ball back high up the field before Scott McDonald sliced a half-volley over the bar.
Williams then attempted an ambitious chip from a free-kick on the halfway line which only just cleared Carl Ikeme's crossbar.
The Lions were doing most of the early pressing and in the 20th minute, Richard Chaplow's corner evaded Gregory before curling inches wide of the far post.
But it was the hosts took the lead from a set-piece opportunity at the other end.
There was some debate as to whether Matthew Briggs' clearance had in fact gone out for a throw in but Sako whipped in the corner and Batth converted from eight yards.
Millwall responded well to the goal and after McDonald's drive was tipped behind, Gregory stabbed the ball through to Jimmy Abdou who side-footed wide with the goal gaping.
Five minutes before half time, Gregory was tripped as he turned on the ball inside the area but referee Darren Drysdale waved away the hosts' penalty appeals.
After the restart, O'Brien cut inside from the left flank and shot into the arms of Ikeme before McDonald's header from Gregory's cross bounced off the post.
But quick-fire goals from Ebanks-Landell and Sako put Wolves in a commanding position and prompted a mass exodus from the stands.
Gregory's 67th minute strike looked to be little more than a consolation until Fuller collected McDonald's knock-down and swept a half-volley into the top corner to make it 3-2.
It should have been 3-3 when sub Lee Martin picked out the run of Gregory with an inch-perfect cross, only for the striker to stab the ball over the bar from inside the six yard box.
There was still time for another Millwall chance, though, and it came when Martin's pass found Fuller, who turned as he controlled the ball before drilling a shot beyond Ikeme.
In the eighth minute of added time, Wolves sprung a quick counter attack and Williams was left with no choice other than to bring down Evans, who was through on goal.
From the resulting free kick, Forde produced a strong one-handed save to keep out Sako and ensure the Lions enjoyed a share of the spoils.
