Wolves caretaker boss Terry Connor believes the turbulent events of the last few days have given him even more belief he can cope with the demands of being a manager.
Connor saw his side beaten 5-0 at Fulham on Sunday in only his second game in charge, and also lost the services of key midfielder Karl Henry for up to a month through injury.
Then the following day he had to discipline club skipper Roger Johnson after deeming him to have reported in an unfit condition to train properly.
Connor next faces a Barclays Premier League bottom-four clash with Blackburn at Molineux tomorrow, but he is relishing the challenge.
"It has been a tough few days but those are the problems thrown at you and you have to deal with them," he said.
"We allowed Fulham too much time to pass and move the ball around and, if you do that against a quality side, they will be able to tear you apart.
"The situation with Roger is the sort of thing I've not had to deal with before but I thought I dealt with it adequately enough.
"Injuries, like the one to Karl, are unfortunate but the sort of thing that happen all the time.
"If anything, all that has happened has given me more belief that I can do the job.
"I've experienced things this week where I think, 'I can tuck that away, I know now what I need to do to deal with those situations'.
"It has given me more belief I can do this job and certainly make sure we stay in the Premier League this season."
Wolves have gone more than three months without a home win and lost 5-1 to West Brom in the last game at Molineux - a match which sealed manager Mick McCarthy's fate.
Connor knows that record has to improve but is trying to play down the significance of the Blackburn game as he predicted another last-day-of-the-season battle to survive in the top flight.
He said: "I know we haven't won at home since December 4 but we have to try to play in a positive manner, be bold and win a game of football.
"I hope the fans react to that and give a positive feedback to the players. Hopefully then everyone can go home with a smile on their faces.
"The lads are professional. This is their home pitch, and they want to win on that home pitch.
"People are building up the significance of this game and we know it will be big but it is not the end of the campaign.
"We will try to get three points and, if we do, it will be a great win and a great boost for everyone.
"If it goes the other way, we've got another 10 games after that to get the points we need to stay in the Premier League."
Wolves stayed up on the final day of last season despite losing 3-2 to Blackburn after trailing 3-0, with Stephen Hunt's late goal edging them in front of relegated Birmingham on goal difference.
Connor said: "It was a rollercoaster of a day and at the end of it there was joy and relief as we had retained our Premier League status.
"We're be looking to do the same come the end of this season. I think it will be decided again there or thereabouts on the final day.
"I'd love to win the next five or six games and not have to worry about that. But I'm realistic - I know what happens."
