Surman was bought and sold by Wolves boss Mick McCarthy in the space of 10 months but has no doubt his former club will stay up.
After Tuesday's 2-2 draw, he said: "They are in a bit of a false position at the moment. They've got some good players. I'm sure they will be fine.
"It is difficult for any team to come to Molineux. I'm sure they'll pick up more points towards the end of the season.
"With the size of the club and the quality of the players they've got here, they'll be all right."
