The way things stand, seventh-placed Wolves will only need to finish fifth to qualify for Europe's premier competition next season.
Asked if City's suspension changes anything for his side, the Wolves captain replied: "Not at all.
"We want to finish the season as strong as possible, we really do. But that doesn't matter what's going on with other clubs elsewhere, in other competitions.
"It's up to us to take it a game at a time, and that's what we are doing. We're improving with every single game.
"There are 12 league games left now, and it's important that we improve in every game, and then see where we are at the end of the season."
