Gary Johnson took satisfaction from the point that sealed Yeovil's League One status after their 2-2 draw at Leyton Orient.
A brace from Kevin Lisbie had seemingly eased the pressure on relegation-threatened Orient, but Yeovil summoned up a late effort with Andrew Williams reducing the deficit before Jon Obika scored late into added time.
Johnson said: "We weren't playing particularly well and we laid into the players a bit at half-time. We needed something out of the game after last week's poor performance and credit to the players, they showed great character in the second-half.
"We've worked on a lot of set-plays, which we thought would be very important and we looked very, very dangerous from our set-plays.
"In the end, that's got us the two goals. The boys have battled well and in the end, it was a hard-fought draw which has kept us in this division mathematically, which is fantastic.
"I wiped my brow at the end because it was one of those games that we needed to draw at least even though we left it late."
