He continued: "We had to win the game and there was a lot of pressure on us, so hopefully now we can go on and build on it now and embark on a run in the league.
"Undoubtedly there was pressure on us with the way results had gone recently, with losing to Kilmarnock and drawing the two games. It was an early kick-off as well, so all the other teams were watching to see how we got on.
"But we were also confident we could get a positive result, and while there was pressure on us, that's why the gaffer brings us here - as we should be able to deal with that, and I felt we did.
"We hadn't won a game for three games, so now we need to build a platform and try and go on a winning run. Hopefully this is the start of something."
