Brighton boss Chris Hughton accepts that his side now face a massive game at home to Newcastle United on Saturday, having narrowly lost 1-0 at Spurs.
A late Christian Eriksen strike denied Albion of a point at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and left the Seagulls just three points clear of the Premier League drop zone with three games to play.
And, with clashes with Arsenal and Manchester City to follow the visit of the Magpies, Hughton is only too well aware that a win is something of a necessity at the weekend.
He told reporters: "From our point of view, perhaps if we made a few better choices on the ball and managed the game a little bit better in the last period, then I think we come away with a result.
"To come here and put in a performance, albeit a gritty, defensive performance, it speaks volumes.
"We know we have to take that into Saturday's game, which now becomes our biggest game. We'll be up against a Newcastle team that have been good away from home and have a system they use very well.
"We'll need goals and what we'll need to do is win the game in whichever way possible."
Brighton, who have now failed to score in any of their last seven games in all competitions, are 6/5 to win on Saturday, with the draw priced at 21/10 and a 1-1 final scoreline available at 11/2.
