Luton travel to Molineux hoping to build on their solid start to the season which see's them occupying 5th place.
Mike Newell talking about Wolves on http://www.lutontoday.co.uk/:
'We watched them in the cup last night and they'll have 24 hours less to recover than we had, which is good for us.
'Wolves have had a taste of the Premiership before and are all geared up for it really.
'As a club they have everything in place. They've got an experienced manager in who has been there before and won it with Sunderland so he knows what it's all about.
'He'll know what's required to do it again, but whether he can do it immediately is a different matter.
'It's very difficult to change a team's style of football overnight. But Mick likes his sides to pass it around and work hard, which is the same as us.
'We're looking forward to it because it's a great place to go and play. It's a club with a fantastic history and a great ground.'
Polish international Tomasz Frankowski has joined CD Tenerife on a season long loan after flopping at Wolves.
The Wolves striker can cause plenty of problems for visiting sides.
Markus Heikkinen, Steve Robinson and Warren Feeny have all returned to training and should be in contention for a starting place tomorrow. With Chris Coyne still struggling, it will strengthen Mike Newells team no end if Heikks is able to make a quicker return than expected to the first team as the Finnish international is one of the best defenders in the Championship.
Perhaps just as important is Steve Robinson, who is arguably the only defensive midfielder at the club (well at least the only one Mike plays!) and who's presence has been missed with the central midfield failing to impress in his absence.
Up front it would seem to be Vine and one other, possible the favourite to partner Rowan would be new signing Sam Parkin who has joined from Championship rivals Ipswich Town. Now Mike doesn't normally like to throw players straight into the team, but with Feeney only just back and Boyd still looking unfit then if Parkin is ready then I expect him to get the nod.
The defender oozes class and hopefully he will be fit enough to play the full 90 minutes.
Luton have played at Wolves 13 times and have a decent record winning 5 times. Our last win there was in 1994-95 when we won 3-2, this match saw a fantastic performance from the Hatters who were three goals to the good at one point and looked good value to add to it, of course Luton being Luton they made us fans panic when Marvin Johnson deflected two Paul Stewart shots into his own net!!
Overall our league record at Molinuex reads played 13 won 5 drawn 2 lost 6.
Wolves 1 Luton 1.
