Wilson is set to make his Reds debut against Northampton in the Carling Cup.
"Jonjo was excellent when I played alongside him for the reserves last week and if he's given a chance I think he is well worth it because he had a great game," said Wilson, a £2million signing from Rangers in the summer.
"Jonjo is a quality young player and if he is given a chance then I'm sure he wouldn't let anyone down.
"He signed at the same time as me and we get on really well. We have got some good lads here and I get on really well with them."
