Wigan goalkeeper Ali Al Habsi hailed his side's battling draw with Liverpool as they made it five points from their last three games.
The Latics followed up their weekend draw with Chelsea with another point against Liverpool at the DW Stadium on Wednesday night.
Al Habsi was the hero for Wigan with a man-of-the-match display to keep Liverpool at bay, with the keeper saving a second half penalty from Charlie Adam to give his side a precious point.
Despite spending Christmas in the relegation zone, Al Habsi believes Wigan are showing signs of improvement in their last few games.
"It's a big result," he told Sky Sports HD1.
"The last three games we have been fantastic. Three points at West Brom and then two big teams here (at the DW Stadium).
"Everyone thought Wigan would be struggling, but we showed, as we do in training and in the dressing room, that we'll fight to stay in this league.
"To play like we did against Chelsea and Liverpool, we showed we're improving."
Of his penalty save, the Oman international added: "They (most players) hit it at the angle he hit it at.
"He has a fantastic left foot and I was ready. I am happy and happy for everyone else."
