Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl said his side knew it was "time to show up" after they carved out a point against Wolves.
"You could feel it in the dressing room. Everyone knew it was time to show up," said Hasenhuttl.
"I know it was two difficult games we lost before but we were very critical with ourselves and that is the right way to make something better. If you are not honest, it is difficult to improve.
"It was a step forward. We were more stabilised in this game, better organised with our shape.
"It absolutely helps morale. After the last three games, the situation is never easy."
