Wolves' long-term injury victim Adlene Guedioura expects to play again this season despite breaking his leg on Sunday.
Guedioura fractured his tibia in a challenge with Steve Sidwell in Wolves' 2-1 defeat by Midlands rivals Aston Villa.
The 24-year-old is expected to miss between four to six months of action with some speculating he could be sidelined for the rest of the season.
However, the ex-Charleroi midfielder is willing and eager to do everything possible to ensure that does not happen.
"It depends on how my recovery goes but I hope to play again this season," he told the Express and Star.
"I think I'll be stronger mentally and I'll work hard physically.
"What's happened is sad, but I'm not down about it because I know I'll come back stronger.
"I've got time to work hard and when I come back I'll do my best to fight for Wolves again."
Guedioura also bears no ill-feeling towards Sidwell, stating he does not believe the Villa midfielder intended to hurt him.
He continued: "I don't think he wanted to injure me - he wanted to get the ball and it wasn't malicious.
"I don't bear him any bad feelings - he was trying to win the ball."
