Csaba Laszlo praised his resurgent Dundee United side as they continued their revival with a 3-1 win over Partick Thistle.
The Tannadice boss found himself under pressure as the Tangerines followed up their Betfred Cup exit with defeat to Dunfermline in their opening Ladbrokes Championship clash.
But Laszlo’s men have now made it back-to-back wins after adding victory over Alan Archibald’s Jags to their triumph at Queen of the South two weeks ago.
He told ArabZONE: “I must compliment the team because we really looked like a team.
“We were always the more clinical and more dangerous side and for this reason we really deserved to keep the three points at home.
“It’s good that we have now won two games in a row and we can now be focused for next week against Alloa.”
Ayr United lead the way on goal difference as their 4-1 hammering of Dunfermline sent Ian McCall’s team to the top of the table.
Morton are level on seven points, however, after securing a 2-1 win over Ross County at Cappielow.
Pressure is starting to mount on Falkirk boss Paul Hartley’s shoulders after his side lost for third league game running as Stephen Dobbie’s hat-trick sealed a 3-0 win for Queens.
Alloa, meanwhile, climb above the basement Bairns after picking their first point of the season with a 2-2 draw against Inverness.
