Stearman: The defender thinks Spurs will be stinging from their hammering against City
Wolves defender Richard Stearman is wary of a Tottenham team who could have a point to prove at Molineux on Saturday.
Mick McCarthy's team have picked up seven points from their opening three games while Spurs have been beaten by the two Manchester clubs - including a 5-1 home drubbing by Manchester City.
But Stearman knows Spurs have a massive array of talent at their disposal, particularly after the arrival of Emmanuel Adebayor and Scott Parker before the transfer window closed.
Stearman said: "The table is a bit disjointed at the moment, with some teams down there who shouldn't be.
"Spurs will want a response from their last game against Manchester City and they've got a whole wealth of talent in their squad.
"Parker and Adebayor have come in and you look at the array of talent they've got and I think they could call upon anyone in their squad and you'd find they were an international player.
"They've added very well in the window. It's going to be one of the toughest games we'll probably face, but then again in recent times we have done okay against them."
Meanwhile, striker Sam Vokes has told skysports.com he is determined to force his way into the Wolves first team this season.
The Wales international has had a difficult 12 months having torn a hamstring on his Bristol City debut this time last year before ending on a high with successful loan spells at Sheffield United and Norwich.
However, with the 21-year-old included in Wolves' 25-man squad for this season, he has no intention of leaving for another loan stint any time soon.
"I'm a Wolves player first and foremost, so my main aim will always be to break into the side here," he said.
He added: "Hopefully, I'll get my chance here at Wolves, but if not we'll have to see what happens I guess."
