Sheffield United boss Danny Wilson felt his side's 4-1 win at home to Stevenage was just reward after dominating the match.
Shaun Miller scored twice on his full league debut for the Blades with Neill Collins and Chris Porter also finding the net. Boro skipper Mark Roberts struck at the end of the first half to make it 1-1 at the break.
Wilson said: "From start to finish we did enough in the game to suggest we deserved a scoreline like that. We dominated from the first minute but unfortunately we were undone by a set-play just before half-time.
"We told the players at half-time to just keep doing what they'd been doing. We were creative and put some dangerous balls into the box which they had difficulties dealing with. In the second half, we took our chances very well. Shaun Miller did very well and he's being doing well all season, in fairness, but he's been unlucky.
"We had a look at Shaun out wide a couple of games ago and that position is not really suitable for him so we put him in the middle and tried Nick (Blackman) on the wing. I thought Nick did very well at times.
"It's great to score four goals at home because the fans have witnessed some good football this year without the end product. They got the end product this time and there was a bit of swagger about our play at times, which is great."
Stevenage have now lost four out of their last five games and manager Gary Smith is now looking for his players to bounce back to end the run of defeats.
He said: "It's an unpleasant feeling and we've sampled it too many times now already. I thought when we got ourselves back in the game at 1-1 there would be a much greater desire to compete and to make it a bit of a contest.
"We failed pretty much all afternoon to deal with any delivery into the box. I have to say the back four have not stood up strong enough and we've paid the price for it.
"Our challenge at this point, while we're not playing well, is to be a side that's more difficult to beat. We've done it previously when we've shown good resilience, good shape and good discipline away from home."
