Michael Jacobs is confident Wolves can hold their own in the Championship after winning last season's League One title.
Wanderers warmed up for Sunday's mouth-watering home clash with Norwich by drawing 1-1 with Celta Vigo in a competitive Molineux clash.
"It was always going to be a tough test against La Liga opposition but it was a good workout for us," said Jacobs on the club's official website. "You're always going to learn stuff from teams like that. I'm feeling fit and raring to go now.
"I'm not the biggest fan of pre-season. It's always nice to come back, get fit and make the most of the workouts, but no player looks forward to pre-season. It's nice to play some games and get back into the swing of things, but now everyone's raring to go for the first game."
The 22-year-old, who scored eight times last term after joining from Derby, added: "It's always going to be tough when it's a step up but we've kept the same group of players and we've kept the more experienced that were out of contract.
"You look at the quality of players we've got, players that have been there and done it in the Championship, as well as young and upcoming players that want to prove themselves at this level.
"We've got a good squad with good depth and I think there's good quality. Also, the hunger and desire to do well is a big thing that we've got."
