Saunders, who was left still in search of his first win as Wolves manager on Saturday, was happy to gain a point away from home in a game dominated by the hosts.

"It's a great point away from home," Saunders said. "It's a clean sheet.

"It was difficult to play against them. They just bombarded long balls. They missed a few half-chances. But we coped well and showed spirit and determination."

Wolves have had a positive start to Saunders' reign and today's stalemate means they are now seven points clear of the danger zone.

"I'm getting a clearer picture of what we need to do well in this league," Saunders added. "I don't think there's major surgery needed. We just need a bit of tinkering around.

"Two games and we've let in just one goal so it's the start I wanted. This will give us some belief after the last away game (FA Cup defeat to Luton).

"I thought Ebanks-Blake looked dangerous. He looked as if he could get a goal for us. Obviously Kevin Doyle is an international, so we have some good players, and they just lack a bit of belief and confidence.

"If we get a couple of wins, it will be good. It might see players play like they should."
