Conor Coady will return to Huddersfield Town buoyed by praise from his boss Kenny Jackett.
The £2m midfielder missed the Championship clash with his former club at Molineux in October.
He had served a suspension for his sending off against Brighton and Hove Albion and couldn’t force his way back into the side for a game Wolves won 3-0.
The 22-year-old Liverpool product cost Town £375,000 in August 2014 and made 48 appearances, scoring three goals.
He has now played 25 times for Wolves.
“I’ve been pleased with his form,” said Jackett.
“His energy, his commitment, his heart has been very good. He’s kept going.
“I thought he played well on Saturday (in the 2-1 home defeat by Preston North End).
“He’s got a good attitude, very wholehearted.
“The sending off earlier in the season perhaps rocked him a bit slightly, because he was in very good form early on.
“He’s found the balance now, I don’t want to take away his tackling and his competitive nature.
“Picking up second balls and putting in the type of running stats that midfield players need, he is capable of it.
“When he gets an assist like Saturday, it rounds his game off very well.”
Jackett is plotting a first win in six against Town and understands fans’ frustration.
“The responsibility goes with myself,” he said. “And it goes with the players.
“And if the supporters see on the pitch a good performance, a winning performance, a cohesive performance, then they’ll get behind the team.
“And when they see what they don’t like, they won’t. I accept that.
“It’s our responsibility to make sure that both performances and results pull us away from 12th and start to climb up into the upper reaches of the division.”
