Wolves boss Mick McCarthy admitted relief after victory over Wigan Athletic.
Wolves won 3-1 in a bitter clash.
McCarthy said: "It all looks different with one win and we knew that would be the case.
"But it was much needed. We can't keep going on saying we did alright. You've got to win a game and today was the one we needed to win against Wigan.
"What pleased me most was the reaction after taking the lead and then conceding a penalty.
"It was the great togetherness of the place. The crowd were brilliant. We conceded the penalty and they got the lads going again.
"Then we came out second half, and it was a great response by all of us.
"That was nice. There was just a real nice togetherness in the place and we've got to have that."
