Manager Micky Mellon said Tranmere Rovers got what they set out for at the start of the evening when they picked up three points in a 2-1 win over Boreham Wood at Prenton Park.
After a quick start which saw Andy Cook strike a brace in the opening 13 minutes, Rovers conceded a late goal to make for a tense final few minutes.
The manager said that at this time of the campaign, it is results that matter more than performance.
He told Tranmere Player HD: “It is important that you get the results first and foremost at this stage of the season.
“I’ve done this for a while now and so games at this stage of the season don’t surprise me but it’s important to get those three points.
“We could have put ourselves out of sight but there are a lot of things we would like to improve on.
“The thing I wanted to get out of the evening was three points and we got that.
“It was a great start. It doesn’t get any better than that, does it? They were two great finishes that set us on our way.”
