Chris Powell is considering handing Grant Holt a first Town start as he aims to maintain the feel good factor created by victory over Millwall when his side head to Wolves.

The on-loan Wigan Athletic striker came off the bench to help seal Saturday's 2-1 home success over the Londoners - Town's second league victory of the season and their first under Powell.

 

"I brought Grant here to play matches, so starting him is certainly a possibility," said the manager, whose side go to Blackburn Rovers on Saturday.

"He's not been too involved at Wigan, but you have to look through that and see the whole picture, and from my point of view, Grant ticks all the boxes.

"He has scored goals at all levels, he was playing in the Premier League only last season and he is driven to show people what he is all about.

"He will always push himself, and it's down to me to decide on the right time for him to play 90 minutes."

Powell says there will also be future opportunities for former Wolves player Adam Hammill and on-loan Nottingham Forest man Radi Majewski.

"Adam has had an injury and Radi a personal issue," he explained. "But I never write players off, and I like things I have seen from them.

"I can only choose 11 to start a game and seven more for the bench, but I will do my best to give them an opportunity."

Powell will give injury worries Lee Peltier and Jonathan Hogg the maximum time to prove their fitness as Town seek a seventh successive win in meetings with Wolves, who have a 100% home league record this season and have brought in Hull City striker Yannick Sagbo on loan.

The boss anticipates a tough test, explaining: "They have good players, and they have momentum, which is a big thing. You sense they are on their way back after a tough time.

"But we have for that first win since I came here, something we all needed, and we all want to make sure it's the first of many."
