Brighton head coach Chris Hughton was pleased with the efforts of his players after the Seagulls earned a potentially precious point from a goalless draw at Wolves.
Albion ended a run of five straight defeats in all competitions with a dogged display at Molineux, although they were unable to end a run of six games without a goal which has seen them far too close for comfort to the relegation places.
Hughton, though, was happy with the spirt shown by his side and was content with a hard-fought share of the spoils which moved his team three pints clear of the drop zone.
He told Sky Sports: "We asked the players for a response and we certainly got that with what they were prepared to give and how hard they were prepared to work.
"It's hard coming here as they've got so many good footballers. You know if you open up too much, they can hurt you. We could've been better with our link play, the times that we broke.
"But we knew it would be difficult and we knew if we could keep a clean sheet we would give ourselves a chance.
"For long periods we've been okay in the division and we're on the back of two defeats that hurt us, and people questioned our confidence.
"But you can't become a bad team overnight. This has hopefully set us up for what will be another four difficult games."
Brighton are now priced at 9/2 to be relegated this season, while they are 1/7 to avoid the drop and maintain their Premier League status.
