A 4-1 home loss to Cologne was followed by a 3-0 defeat at Bayern Munich last time out, and those heavy setbacks left last season's Bundesliga runners-up eight points off the pace after seven games.
However, Leverkusen got back to winning ways with a 2-0 Champions League win over Genk on Tuesday, and Dutt wants his side to follow up that with another victory against Wolfsburg - one that he hopes will completely repair the damage caused by the Cologne loss.
"The Cologne defeat has left us with a deficit of three points in the league and that is still playing on our minds," Dutt said at the pre-match press conference.
"The win against Genk has softened the pain slightly whereas a win against Wolfsburg would heal the wound."
Dutt may recall Michael Ballack to his starting XI after the former Germany captain scored as a substitute against Genk.
He missed out in Munich last weekend due to illness, but appears to be getting back to his best.
Wolfsburg coach Felix Magath believes Leverkusen could still be affected by their midweek exertions, and he says his side must take advantage of that.
"We have a good chance of winning in Leverkusen," he said on his club's website.
"While the Champions League game could still be in their bones, we have been able to prepare all week for this game.
"That is certainly an advantage and that is why we want to play a quick game and force our opponents into making errors in defence."
Former Leverkusen striker Patrick Helmes could be given a chance against his former side after impressing Magath in training over the past week.
"He has been very engaged in training," reported Magath.
Helmes scored a brace against another of his former clubs Cologne on the opening day of the season and may now get the chance to shine again after returning to the starting XI against Kaiserslautern last week having been left out for the previous few games.
Meanwhile, regular number one Diego Benaglio is set to return in goal after recovering from a hand injury.
"It is highly likely that he will play," said Magath.
