Mick McCarthy insists it will be business as usual at the weekend when QPR visit Molineux - where a victory for Wolves would see them promoted to the Premier League.
Andy Keogh's late winning goal against Derby at Pride Park saw Wolves strengthen their grip on the Coca-Cola Championship title and all-but assured them of automatic promotion.
The 3-2 victory stretched Wolves' lead at the top of the table to six points with just three games remaining after nearest rivals Birmingham and third-placed Sheffield United, a further point behind the Blues, were held to home draws by Plymouth and Nottingham Forest respectively.
Another win on Saturday would guarantee Wolves' return to the top flight, but manager McCarthy was quick to play down that notion.
"That's dangerous. They will all be wanting the carnival stuff and the fanfare and turning up and giving it large and the big yahoo, but it's business as usual as far as I am concerned," said the Yorkshireman.
A moment of brilliance from Keogh gave Wolves the lead after seven minutes at Derby before Przemyslaw Kazmierczak's free-kick brought the hosts level on the half-hour mark.
Mile Sterjovski put the Rams ahead 10 minutes after the break and Matt Jarvis restored parity midway through the second half.
It looked like Wolves would have to settle for a hard-earned point but Keogh sent the travelling Wanderers faithful into ecstasy with a headed winner three minutes from time.
McCarthy was scathing in his assessment of his side's performance but singled out matchwinner Keogh for some special praise.
"We were hopeless. We were awful. We were rubbish. We couldn't play any worse and we won the game. We were bobbins, except for Keogh and Jarvo (Matt Jarvis) and the front lads," said McCarthy.
"But we kept going and winning games is not always about playing free-flowing football. There are lots of ways to win games and sometimes you have to do it ugly, and that's what we have done.
"I am thrilled for Andy Keogh. He wasn't flavour of the month with me in the first half when he kept turning and not laying the ball off. He is now though.
"He's fantastic. He put a real shift in and he deserved his goal. He hasn't scored for a while and I asked him what that 'Keogh, Keogh' chant was because we haven't heard it for a while."
Derby are still not safe from relegation. The Rams are five points above the drop zone but have a game in hand over most of the teams below them.
