Club legend Steve Bull believes Wolves can establish themselves as a Barclays Premier League force along the lines of Stoke and Fulham if they clinch a third successive season in the top flight.
Wolves will go into Sunday's home game with Blackburn knowing that victory will ensure their safety irrespective of results elsewhere and Bull, Wolves' record goalscorer, feels survival will be an even bigger achievement than last season.
He said: "I think Wolves can definitely kick on if they survive this year like Stoke and Fulham have done. They always say the first couple of years are the hardest to stop in the Premier League. Once they've cemented that place, they can go on from strength to strength. Stoke and Fulham are the ones to follow."
He added: "That is what Wolves got to start striving for now, a bit of stability in the Premier League.
"Hopefully Mr (Steve) Morgan (chairman-club owner) will put some more money into the club and will strengthen in certain positions where we've been lacking this season."
Bull has no doubt that manager Mick McCarthy is the man to stay at the helm even if Wolves are relegated.
He said: "If Mick keeps us again this year, he is a magician.
"Mick seems to have the knack in certain games of getting points at the vital times.
"He did it last year, he's done it last year, but it isn't over. We are still in the mix but I'm sure Mick will turn it around.
"I don't want to talk about going down but stability is the main thing. I think Mick the man to stay even if Wolves are relegated."
