Victory at Bristol City has the fallen giants eyeing Premier League promotion.
Warnock said: "We were worthy winners.
"Austin headed against the bar and how their keeper saved an even better chance, I'll never know.
"You could tell we deserved the points... I hardly got abused by the home fans!
"What a week it has been. First we beat Everton in the Capital One Cup. Then Bristol. And it's all been done with seven players out injured.
"As far as the takeover is concerned, I'm happy just to concentrate on the game ahead. I've been living with this takeover business for months."
