David Edwards is confident Wolves can gain a positive result at Manchester United after admitting the win over Manchester City was a 'massive relief'.
Wolves secured a first Premier League victory since the opening day of the season on Saturday, with Edwards scoring the winner in a 2-1 success at Molineux.
That match was bang in the middle of a tricky run for Wolves who had lost at leaders Chelsea in their previous league game before being knocked out of the Carling Cup by United.
Mick McCarthy's side return to Old Trafford this coming weekend before rounding off their tough run with a trip to Arsenal a week on Wednesday.
Edwards was buoyed by the performance against City and feels Wolves can take heart from their 3-2 loss at United in the cup last week.
"We got a good performance on Tuesday against Manchester United in the Carling Cup and that showed to us that we can go there on Saturday and get a result," Edwards told the Express & Star. "The boys are very confident that we can get something.
"Saturday was a massive relief and three massive points for us.
"If we had lost we would have gone to Old Trafford really cut adrift at the bottom so it was nice to get three points.
"It's nice to get some points to match the performances because in the last three or four games we have played well and not picked up the results."
The midfielder also thinks the demands of the fixture list for the Premier League's top teams are a key factor behind the number of upsets so far this season in the top flight.
He said "I think (the big teams) are more beatable this season than any other season because of the intensity of their fixture list.
"The lower teams are really closing the gap on how good they are.
"In the past you had the bottom three or four teams who would never get a result against a big team. But I think the Premier League is now getting a bit closer and that is good for us."
