Terry Connor says Wolves can avoid relegation from the Premier League and believes his side can take motivation from Blackburn and QPR's recent results.
Wolves are currently bottom of the table, having won just once in 2012 and have conceded 14 goals in just four games under Connor.
But the new manager feels that seeing Blackburn climb out of the danger zone with back-to-back wins and watching QPR fight back from 2-0 down to beat Liverpool 3-2, shows his players that it is not over yet.
"There is no sense of the players being resigned to their fate. Not one of them feels that way," said Connor.
"They all want to play at Norwich. They are all ready to go. They have seen the results of the other sides around them.
"Blackburn have got back-to-back wins and are out of immediate danger. The lads also saw what happened on Wednesday night to QPR in coming back to beat Liverpool from two goals down.
"They are thinking 'why not us?' and 'why can't we do it at Norwich?'. The feeling is 'those sides have got their results, we have to get ours on Saturday'.
"All we want to do is get the next result and turn our season around. One game can make a massive difference in this league.
"Two back-to-back wins takes you out of immediate danger and Blackburn are still catchable because there are enough points to play for."
The Wolves boss realises, though, that his team need to rediscover winning form sooner rather than later after five games without a victory.
He said: "We want to take something from every game we play.
"The next home game is always going to be a crucial game. It is against Bolton so we know it is going to be a team that is around us.
"We have to approach Norwich first, and get something from that game, and then we can look at Bolton and focus on that one and take something from that as well."
