Wolves now have nine days between their last game and their next as a result of their match against the Blues getting pushed back because of TV coverage.
The sides will square off next Monday, and Nuno has said that his players will use the time wisely, with rest and recovery on the mind.
"It’s a moment to recover well and work better to keep improving.
"We’re going to rest now and prepare strong for the next game – it’s a derby, everybody know.
Wolverhampton are currently four points clear at the top of the Championship standings with 44 points. But the coach has downplayed the lead and has urged his men to keep on working and to focus on themselves.
"I keep repeating myself, (the lead) doesn’t mean anything at all," he insisted.
"We don’t look where our opponents are in the table – we analyse them on their strengths and weaknesses.
"They have a lot of talent, but there is no talent without hard work.
