Neill Collins is under no illusions about the size of the task in hand at Wolves, but he is adamant United aren't just heading to the Black Country to make up the numbers.
The experienced former Wolves defender said: "This is a game that wouldn't look out of place in the Premiership, but the basic facts are we are both in League One for a reason.
"At the moment we are desperately trying to get a positive result and it is down to us (the players) to put things right.
"We knew this season was going to be tough because we are going through something of a transition but at a club like Sheffield United the expectation level understandably remains very high."
Looking ahead to the weekend, Collins added: "Wolves, given their financial position, are in a strong place in terms of recruitment as we saw when they signed Kevin (McDonald) earlier in the season.
"They have some very good players, Leigh Griffiths scored a lot of goals in the SPL last season and Kevin Doyle has scored goals in the Premiership.
"It will be a tough game that goes without saying, but at the moment we are solely focusing on trying to kick-start our season and a positive result at Molineux would be an ideal starting point.
"Wolves have enjoyed a good start to the season, but there is no reason why we can't get something from the game if we are at our best."
