Dalglish said: "I think it was a fantastic performance - the result reflected the performance. For us, we are delighted we have at last got reward for a great performance here.

"It is one of the many we have had here, but we got reward for the effort we put in tonight.

"It is always nice when you play really well and win. Sometimes it is even better when you are rubbish and you still get three points but that hasn't happened to us too many times this season.

"It is a good reward for the players. It is great they maintained the belief in themselves and the philosophies we have got and the way they have been playing.

"I don't think it will do them any harm but we have got a really difficult game coming up on Sunday.

"We will enjoy this for a couple of days and then look forward to Sunday."
