Chris Powell will take a first-hand look at Wolves as he plots the win which would maintain Huddersfield Town’s improved Championship challenge.
Powell’s 15th-placed side make for Molineux on Saturday lunchtime unbeaten in three games and looking for a third victory in four.
But they will drop a place and be leapfrogged by Wolves if the Black Country side can beat Fulham at Craven Cottage on Tuesday and jump from 16th into the top half of the table.
Kenny Jackett’s team have hit a sticky patch and are without a win in four in all competitions and three in the league.
It took a stoppage-time equaliser by Kevin McDonald to rescue a point from a 1-1 draw with nine-man Preston North End at Deepdale on Saturday.
But Wolves, who sold Richard Stearman to Fulham for £2m earlier this month, have been boosted by the return from injury of fellow centre-back Danny Batth.
The former Sheffield United and Wednesday loan player, 25, has replaced Stearman as skipper of a side missing Mali international striker Nouha Dicko with a knee injury.
Manager Kenny Jackett will have former Town midfielder Conor Coady available for Saturday’s showdown, which is live on Sky Sports.
The 22-year-old, sold for £2m this summer, will have completed a three-match ban after his red card in Wolves’ last home game, a goalless draw with Brighton and Hove Albion.
“The Fulham game gives me a good chance to take a good look at Wolves,” said Powell, whose side were last in action in last Thursday’s 1-1 home draw with Nottingham Forest.
“It’s going to be a other tough test for us, but we are seeing the shoots of a side which has just settled down after an eventful spell in terms of transfers and injuries.
“While those two did go, we have got new players in on loan who have helped and galvanised the team. But there is still work to be done.”
