Blues boss Alex McLeish may unleash improving centre-forward Nikola Zigic at Molineux on Saturday.
Joint basement boys Wolves are the hosts as Blues look to end a dismal away run which has seen them fail to win a single game on the road for nine months.
McLeish may be tempted to start with the Serbian striker after he impressed in the past two games.
The giant hitman scored a late winner against Aston Villa in the Carling Cup quarter-final last week.
For the Premier League game against Spurs the Scot rested his midweek hero but threw him on with 30 minutes of the match remaining.
His introduction turned the game on it’s head as Spurs struggled to deal with his aerial presence.
The former Valencia forward set up Craig Gardner’s equalising goal as Blues salvaged a well-earned point against the Champions League high-flyers.
McLeish was pleased with his performance and said that he is still adapting to life in the English top-flight.
He also said that he showed videos of Spurs striker Peter Crouch, who is just an inch shorter, to Zigic when he first signed for the club.
“It was as good as I’ve seen him play,” said McLeish.
“There’s no doubt we judge people too early. If you don’t do it in the first couple of games then that’s it, you’re a dud and a terrible buy, no matter who he is.
“But we’ve given him time because it’s a different style of play for him and he has found it difficult to adjust.
“When I brought Zigic in I showed him lots of videos of Crouch. That wasn’t overnight for big Peter.
“He’s now a player most teams would like because he’s not only great in the air but he’s got a great touch for a big fella,” he said.
“We looked at a lot of that footage. He’s 29 and he’s been coached differently. He runs a lot to the far post.”
Blues take on Wolves on Sunday and McLeish knows that these are the bread and butter games that are vitally important to win in order to stay clear of the relegation zone.
But the former Rangers boss feels that too much emphasis is put on league positions early in the season.
“People start to get paranoid and they started criticising you when you’re in the bottom part of the table.
“But they shouldn’t because the quality is great.
“At the end of the day there could be the 20 best teams in the world in a division but someone will still be at the bottom.”
