Christophe Berra has shaken off his nasty fall against Manchester City and has declared himself ready for action.
The Wolves centre-half tumbled onto his head during the closing stages of the first half in Monday's 3-0 defeat at Molineux.
Understandably dazed after clattering into the turf, the Scotland international failed to return for the second period.
He admits he remembers little of what followed immediately after the incident, but insists he will be fit for duty when Wolves travel to Tranmere in the third round of the FA Cup on Sunday.
"I felt a lot better when I woke up yesterday (Tuesday) morning," Berra told the club's official website.
"My neck was a wee bit stiff and I've got a sore wrist from how I fell, although thankfully no major damage was done.
"I'll have a couple of days' rest and then if all goes well be back in training with the boys on Friday.
"I do remember going up for the header itself but it left me dazed and I can't remember much about the lads coming in at half-time.
"But after a few minutes everything started to become clearer.
"A lot of people have said how bad it all looked on television but I'm a big, strong guy so hopefully that helped."
While Berra's evening against City was ended prematurely, he insists Wolves can take plenty of positives from their showing against Roberto Mancini's men as they continue in their quest to preserve their Premier League status.
"We've got to take positives from it in that we passed the ball well," he added.
"But we got punished, which is what happens against the top teams who have players costing millions and millions of pounds. We've just got to learn from it and move on.
"I think the gaffer was pleased with how we played and it's disappointing we didn't pick up any points.
"As he said as well, it's not these games which are going to decide our season but the ones against the teams in and around us."
