Slavisa Jokanovic was happy with the reaction his side showed in the 3-1 victory over Ipswich Town after their Derby defeat in midweek.
Floyd Ayite, Scott Malone and Stefan Johansen all got themselves on the scoresheet as the Cottagers produced a routine win after defeat at Pride Park on Tuesday.
Jokanovic dropped David Button for the tie and instead plucked for Marcus Bettinelli who repaid his manager with a fine performance, but they weren't able to get the cleansheet after Christophe Berra's late goal for Ipswich.
But the manager was happy with the three points and how his side showed character in today's victory.
He said: “I am always happy when we win three points.
“I am happy with the reaction. After the defeat against Derby we were a little bit confused why we lost the game when we played many minutes of good football.
“But we made the wrong decision in crucial moments during the game. Today we showed the character and our ambition and played with confidence.
“We scored three goals and we could have scored some more goals, to be honest we were in some kind of trouble during the game but this time we knew better how to survive these moments.
“We should have finished the game with a clean sheet, we were so close, at the end they scored the goal and I’m not sure if the situation was legal or illegal but generally I am happy.
“First of all David Button is a fantastic man, he has done a fantastic job in these 40 games that are behind us.
“I am always looking for what I believe is best for my team, I take this decision at the end and Marcus Bettinelli completed a very good performance, he must be happy with those 90 minutes.
“We were so close to getting a clean sheet, we didn’t do it but I expect in the next game we can make improvements.
“David Button has done a fantastic job for us, he is a great man, really professional. He took the decision really well and I am sure he will be ready if the team needs him, he will be available.
“From the other side that is part of football, I make decisions and I try always to make the best decision for my team.”
