Brighton & Hove Albion defender Connor Goldson hailed the togetherness within the side after yesterday's 1-0 victory over Blackburn Rovers.
The result ended a frustrating run of eight games without a win and the defender says the whole team deserves credit for keeping an important clean sheet.
He said, “We’ve had a tough month and a few bad results, but we dug in and showed that the team spirit in the dressing room is as good as ever.
“It’s not just us, we all take satisfaction from it [from a clean sheet] and we all take a lot of credit. We said at half-time that a clean sheet wins us the game.
“Every team will have a period where they have some sticky results - there won’t be one team that doesn’t. Hopefully we’ve turned the page and can go on another run now that those games are behind us.
“We’ve got our first win and hopefully there are plenty of good times ahead.”

The 23-year-old praised the performances of Lewis Dunk and Bruno in particular and feels he has comfortably slotted into the Albion defence when called upon.
“He [Dunk] was brilliant; he showed today why he’s such a good defender and footballer.
“When he has to dig in and show the other side of his game, he can do that. I’m really happy for him.
“Playing with Bruno is unbelievable. Playing next to him is nice and makes my job a lot easier.
"They’ve both got great experience and are both great players.”
After three consecutive games on the road, Goldson stressed the importance of having a good home record in a promotion push, with Huddersfield Town up next at the Amex on Saturday.
“If you want to be up there in the league, then you need to make your home ground hard to come to and win a lot of your games there; hopefully we can do that.
“We’ve got three home games now starting with the Huddersfield one and hopefully we can take three points there and move on to the next one.
“We all know that there’s good competition for places and if we’re not performing well enough individually, then there are others that can come in and take our places. On an individual basis, it’s about me playing as well as I can when I get a chance.”
