Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Mick McCarthy is hoping that the weekend point at Birmingham City will prove to be the launchpad that will spearhead his side to safety.
The 1-1 draw at St Andrew's on Saturday represented only the ninth point Wolves have picked up on their travels this campaign – away form which has played a contributing factor to the relegation strugglers' season.
"It's another point away from home that we'd have all taken before setting off down the road to St Andrew's," said McCarthy.
“It's never been an easy place to come and play and we've hardly been playing free-flowing football and been brilliant over the last four games.
"Maybe this has stopped the rot because it was a performance full of energy and hard work."
Currently sitting 19th in the Barclays Premier League table, just one point from safety and with three games to play.
Wolves know that the final day fixture against fellow basement battlers Blackburn Rovers at Molineux could prove to be the day that determines their fate.
But positive results from Sunday's match against Midlands rivals West Brom and an away trip to the Stadium of Light the following weekend would go a long way to ensuring Wolves are playing top-flight football next season.
"Of course, it's a nervy time. We are in the bottom three. But we've got to make use of this point by winning our two remaining home games," McCarthy continued.
"It's still the same scenario in the table and who's going to say what number of points it's going to take to stop up. Nobody knows.
"If we stay up, we will look back on all the points as points gained and well-earned."
