Kenny Jackett has warned Wolves that they have a target on their backs after moving to the top of League One with a 1-0 win at Notts County.
Ethan Ebanks-Landell's second-half strike, his first in senior football, finally broke the hosts' resistance at Meadow Lane.
And with Leyton Orient slipping up at Preston it means that Jackett's troops leapfrog them at the summit.
The former Millwall boss admitted his side, shorn of six players on international duty, had to earn victory the hard way against a resilient County.
"I wouldn't say it was ugly. Our performance grew as the game went on and we created some clear-cut chances in the second half," he said.
"But we battled away against a very resilient and very determined Notts County side that were playing their first home game under a new manager.
"Notts County started very well and we were slack with some of our passes.
"But the introduction of Leigh Griffiths made a difference because, although he didn't score, he was a constant threat to their backline.
"Our points total means a lot to me. We have 39 points and that's an excellent return so far.
"It's great for our supporters and great for us to be top of the league, but that does put us there to be shot at.
"We have to build on the good platform we have given ourselves for the season."
