Terry Connor has no problem with Roger Johnson pleading for a place in the team and could recall the defender for Saturday's game against Norwich.
The Wolves captain has not played since being fined for a breach of club discipline earlier this month when he reportedly turned up to training feeling the effects of alcohol.
Connor has since dismissed speculation linking Johnson with a move elsewhere and the 28-year-old could now feature for Wolves at Carrow Road as Ronald Zubar serves a one-match suspension.
"He's been there every session, working hard, and is ready to go," said Connor in the Express & Star.
"There's a first time for everything if it's the first time (I play him)."
Connor added: "He wants to play, he wants to compete, he wants to win and he reminds me of that.
"He lets me know he's available, and that's fine, I've no problem with that whatsoever.
"His chances of playing are the same as last week and the week before."
Connor also laughed off a tweet from Johnson's wife following his omission for the Manchester United game, which read: "Trying to understand why my hubbys on the bench now #ridiculous".
"That (tweet) has no bearing on me and what I do at all," said Connor. "I wasn't aware of it.
"We all know what happened the other week but that was dealt with and Roger has trained really well. He hasn't been a minute's problem to me since."
Blackburn's victory over Sunderland on Tuesday night lifted them six points clear of the relegation zone but Connor does not believe that has added to the pressure on Wolves.
"Even though Blackburn won last night, in two weeks' time, that gap might be down to two points, and everyone would be saying they've been dragged back into it," he said.
"I try very hard not to worry about other teams' results because ours are the only ones I can try to affect, unless we're playing that other team.
"So even after losing 5-0 at home to Manchester United, we're still only a point from getting outside that bottom three."
