Dundee United boss Csaba Laszlo praised his players for winning under pressure but wanted more goals than the two they got against Dumbarton.
After dropping out of the play-off positions following their draw at Morton on Saturday the heat was on the Tangerines.
They responded with a 2-0 success over the Sons at Tannadice that moved them back into fourth place.
The vital victory was earned by first-half strikes from Paul McMullan and Bilel Mohsni but it could have been more convincing.
Now the United boss wants improvement when they head west this weekend for the second part of their double-header against the Sons.
Laszlo said: “I am not (happy) because we had so many chances in this game.
“OK, we scored two but we have to score more goals.
“More than one of our players could have had hat-tricks.
“For that reason, I want to see a better passing game when we play Dumbarton again on Saturday and I want the finishing to be better.
“I was satisfied with the result because the pressure on everybody was very high.
“This was a game that people expected us to win and we just had a very difficult match at Morton.
“So they had to handle the pressure that was on them.
“I saw the players in the dressing room after the game take a big breath so the result was the most important thing for us.”
