Chris Hughton is hoping to take the feel-good factor of Monday's second half show against Manchester City into Saturday's key clasha at Bolton.
Trailing at half-time, the lads deserve credit for hauling themselves back into Monday's game with Jermain Defoe equalising and later having a penalty claim waved away, Robbie Keane had a goal disallowed and Gus Poyet hit the post.
"There is always a feel-good factor when you've finished a game well," reasoned Chris.
"If the scoring had been reversed against City, if we'd have gone 1-0 up but they'd come back and should have won it then there would be more frustration.
"The fact that we played well in the second half and should have gone on to win it from a footballing point of view has made us feel better.
"These are still nervous times. We are going into the last few weeks of the season and we need to get some results, no doubt about it.
"The bottom line is that we have five games left and we have to make sure that we get the results to make sure we don't drift into the bottom five."
