Manager Paul Sturrock felt his Southend United side were worthy winners against Bristol Rovers on Tuesday night.
Sturrock saw his team come back from a goal down to win 3-2 against the Pirates.
And the Scot believed it was a fair result.
“We deserved the three points, but they have some quality players,” Sturrock told the official website.
“We lost a bad goal but we dominated and it could have been 4-0 at half-time.
“We decided to defend in the second half and although we had chances the second half wasn’t as good as the first.”
Tuesday’s win followed Saturday’s FA Cup success at Roots Hall.
And with Southend back on home soil this weekend - against second placed Port Vale - Sturrock hopes his side are beginning to find some form.
“We have got to get this level of consistency every week and start putting some points on the board,” he said.
“Our home form has let us down and there is no bigger game than that coming up on Saturday to put that right.
“Bur for now I am very pleased that the players have responded at a hard place to come and we go home happy.”
