Dalglish told his post-match press conference: "I think the boys deserve great credit for the work they've done out there. They've worked hard all week on the organisational side of it. They got their reward for what they did in training by not conceding any goals and that's as pleasing for us as scoring two at the other end.
"We are delighted with everybody and delighted with the attitude and commitment. Winning against such quality opposition won't do us any harm."
He added: "I hope it's a dress rehearsal. We worked very hard not to concede and to their credit they did it.
"We've got a week to get through now, get our work done this week and see what happens next week."
