Wolves winger Stephen Hunt admits he is still carrying 'a few niggles', but believes he is starting to get back to his energetic best.
The Republic of Ireland international has struggled with knocks throughout his time at Molineux, restricting his game time and the impact he has been able to make.
He was, however, among Wolves' better performers in their recent league and cup double-header with Manchester City.
Hunt admits he is starting to feel more like his old self and believes that with the right care and attention he will soon be firing on all cylinders.
He told the club's official website: "I feel I've looked a little bit back to myself in the last couple of games so I'm looking forward to Wigan (on Sunday) - after a few days rest, though, because I have got a few niggles.
"Hopefully I'm back to the real Stephen Hunt because being up and down the pitch all the time is the way I play when I'm at my best.
"But I also need to stick to my game and not try to be everywhere, covering other positions.
"I just need to cover my little patch and, hopefully, that will be good enough."
Having gone eight games without a win in the Premier League, and having lost six of those fixtures, Hunt admits it is imperative that Wolves get their game plan right when rock-bottom Wigan visit Molineux this weekend.
He added: "The fans have to be patient - this is the Premier League, and every team has at least one bit of quality that can win you the game.
"So we have our bit of quality and we've got to keep a clean sheet and try to score.
"We'll score in most games if we can have a considered approach."
