Stephen Hunt feels the fear of being replaced in January will help inspire Wolves in the weeks ahead.
Mick McCarthy's side have lost eight of their last 10 games as they have slumped down the table after making a bright start.
They face Sunderland this weekend in what is seen as a 'must-win' game at Molineux.
But Hunt feels that the threat of new players arriving in January will help spur the team on.
"The way this club is, and has been, is that it spends money on players to come in and take people's places," he said.
"So with the window coming up, everyone is on trial to a certain degree - with the exception of one or two players.
"That means we must all produce our best form."
