In-form Danny Ings has praised Southampton’s mental strength after their point at Wolves.

The striker scored his fifth goal in four games to earn the Saints a 1-1 draw at Molineux on Saturday.

It ended a three-match losing run but the visitors were denied victory after Raul Jimenez’s second-half penalty.

Boss Ralph Hasenhuttl believed his team needed to show their bottle after defeats to Bournemouth, Tottenham and Chelsea, with Ings hailing their courage.

“For any player it’s important to have a positive mentality around the group, whether you’re starting or not starting,” he told the club’s official website with Southampton now 17th in the Premier League.

“I really feel that’s important for a dressing room and I feel we have a great dressing room. We have players who are hungry and want to learn and it’s great to be a part of.

“I feel it was a great point for us with the circumstances of the game, and now we have a great week coming where we can train, put our work in and hopefully put on another performance.”
