The Town boss was speaking to the press after seeing James Berrett's 25th minute goal bag all three points at The Abbey Stadium.
He said: "Very pleased today. It's not very often that I am but I have to say that I thought the performance was excellent.
"All the things that we spoke about, we did them in the first half.
"And then in the second half, we defended well.
"It wasn't just a rear-guard action, or anything like that.
"But we looked composed, dangerous and still created two good chances.
"We defended their changes well, and still probably had two good chances to put the game to bed."
