Blackburn captain Ryan Nelsen insists the pressure will be on Wolves when they battle for Premier League survival at Molineux on Sunday.
The two clubs are among five fighting to avoid joining West Ham in the Championship next season as the campaign reaches its conclusion.
Rovers and Wolves are both just one point above the relegation zone, meaning the heat will be on when they clash this weekend.
But New Zealand defender Nelsen is confident Wolves will be the ones feeling the strain due to the pressure of the home crowd.
"If you had a choice you'd probably rather be at home, of course," Nelsen told Sky Sports News.
"But it means there's going to be greater expectations on the home team and the fans are going to demand more from the home team.
"The pressure will really be on them to perform, whereas we can do what we want to do."
Steve Kean's men are undefeated in three games and managed to snatch a point against champions Manchester United last weekend.
Nelsen says spirits in the Rovers camp are high ahead of Sunday's showdown, adding: "I think we've had some really good results and some really good performances.
"I think going to Wolves is an exciting prospect for the lads and the guys are really looking forward to it.
"It's games (like this) that really bring the best out of you.
"I think everybody on our team is looking forward to the opportunity to show off their skills when the pressure is at its highest."
