Edwards admits that Wolves still have work to do to maintain their second-tier status, but he has praised the team spirit and work ethic within the squad during their poor run of form.
The 47-year-old is quoted by the Express & Star as saying: "It's been really tough. As a senior member of the team you do feel a lot more responsibility. The good thing is we've always stayed out the bottom three – mentally that's important.
"To get that breathing space now at five points and we've still got a game in hand, I think we've shown real character to come through it.
"There was a time when it could have gone the other way. Credit to everyone in that dressing room, we've got a really good team ethic in there and a good team spirit which has dragged us through."
Despite the upturn in results, Wolves are reportedly considering whether to replace Lambert at the end of the season.
