Everton's Phil Jagielka is hoping his side can now embark on a run of form after their late victory over Wolves.
Jagielka netted the Toffees' equaliser in the clash with Mick McCarthy's men at Goodison Park, cancelling out Stephen Hunt's 36th minute penalty.
Leighton Baines struck the winner for David Moyes' team, converting from the spot with seven minutes left after Louis Saha had been pushed by Stephen Ward.
It was only Everton's second win of the season but one that Jagielka hopes the club can build on.
He told Sky Sports: "I think it was a bit of a frustrating game, especially first half, we were putting the ball in the box a lot but they defended well.
"We went a goal down but thankfully we got the goal before half-time and gave ourselves a chance.
"Obviously we aren't that high up in the table and when you don't create chances and they get a penalty it is a little bit disappointing but it shows the character of the players, manager and coaches that we kept knocking at the door and got ourselves a penalty.
"Fair play to Mick McCarthy's tactics they defended well for most periods of the game. But from our point of view we are just delighted to get the three points."
Prior to the clash with Wanderers, Everton had lost six of their last seven games to drop down to the brink of the relegation places.
With fellow strugglers Bolton at the Reebok next up for the Blues, Jagielka is hoping Satruday's win can inspire the club to string together a winning run.
"If you look at the teams we have played [in recent weeks] they have spent about £400million between them on the playing squad so we knew it was going a little bit harder," he added.
"We still have some tough fixtures coming up but we're hoping to keep the run going.
"That's going to be a really hard game [at Bolton]. They are picking up a bit of form and are in a similar predicament to us, so I'm sure it will be a tough game again but hopefully we can come out victors."
