Wolves head coach Nuno Espirito Santo insists the Sky Bet Championship leaders have recovered from their disappointing draw to struggling Sunderland.
Wolves sit four points clear at the top of the table with 15 wins from 21 games but were held to a 0-0 stalemate at Molineux on Saturday against Sunderland, who are languishing second from bottom.
But Santo says his men are ready to return to winning ways as they prepare to visit Sheffield Wednesday on Friday, live on Sky Sports Football.
"They reacted well. It's part of the Championship. You have to keep improving, finding solutions," he said.
"Not all the games are going to be the same. It's not always possible to score four or five goals.
"This is nothing different in our routine. It was a game. It is over. We analyse… and it's on to the next one."
Santo insists he and his players are not getting carried away with their lofty position and continue to go into each game with the same mindset.
"We don't look at the table. It doesn't mean anything at this moment in the competition," he said.
"We look at our opponent. We analyse the things that they do and we put on the pitch the things that we want and think is better for us to achieve what we want, is to win.
"Every game we go with the same idea. Enjoy, play good football and win."
Santo also revealed he is open to bringing in new signings when the transfer window reopens, as Wolves look to secure promotion back to the Premier League for the first time since the 2011/12 season.
Asked whether he anticipates a busy January for the club, he said: "We are already working on that issue.
"You never know. I always say that a player to come to Wolves squad has to bring something different and increase our quality."
