Adlene Guedioura is hoping to keep his place in the Wolves side for Saturday's trip to Liverpool after making a successful return from injury in midweek.
The Algerian midfielder marked his return from minor ankle surgery in the summer with a man of the match performance in Tuesday's 5-0 demolition of Millwall in the Carling Cup, capping his fine performance with a stunning long-range goal and an assist for George Elokobi.
The 25-year-old was delighted with his return and he is looking forward to the rest of the season after admitting his frustration at missing the start of the campaign.
"I am really happy to have made my return from injury against Millwall and it was good that we won," Guedioura told skysports.com.
"I was glad I played the full game and I am feeling good about my fitness.
"I want to play games now and hopefully I will get to play at Anfield if the gaffer needs me."
Guedioura admitted it was an additional bonus for him to pick up the man of the match honours for his performance against the Lions.
"It was a good boost to be named man of the match and it was reward for all the hard work I put in over the summer to get fit after my ankle surgery," added Guedioura.
Guedioura, who made his English debut against Liverpool in January 2010, insists taking on the Reds holds no fear for Wolves after securing a famous win at Anfield last season.
"Liverpool are a top club and they want to win every game, but this is what the Premier League is about," added Guedioura.
"It will be difficult as Liverpool have dangerous players, but we are ready to go there to give everything to get a positive result. We have won there before so why not do it again.
"It is a special game against Liverpool and everyone is motivated to do well."
Guedioura admits Wolves need to get back on track at Anfield after losing their last two top-flight outings following a bright start to the season.
"We have lost the last two Premier League games and they are bad results to lose at home so we need a positive result at Liverpool and that is a draw or a win," he noted.
