"It was a real team performance," the City boss said after Saturday's 4-2 win at Ashton gate.
"The difference was that we managed to get two goals ahead instead of trying to protect a single goal lead and that enabled the players to express themselves.
"It has been a difficult time for everyone at the club because there's been a fair amount of stick flying around for the team and myself as manager.
"But we are still right up there on the heels of the play-off contenders and if we can put a few wins back-to-back we will be in the thick of it again.
"If possible, I'd like to strengthen the squad before the end of the transfer window - but it's important people don't lose sight of the fact that we have a lot of talent here already."
