Many facets of United's performance on Tuesday night pleased boss Nigel Clough.
Goals from Marc McNulty - his fourth in as many league games - and Jamie Murphy secured United's 2-0 victory over Yeovil Town in Sky Bet League One.
Afterwards, Clough told the media: "We weren't sparkling, not as good as the last home game against Leyton Orient in my opinion, but we were professional and kept our concentration right through until the end.
"In the first half we should have been more than one goal ahead and there were a lot of good performances in the second half, notably Louis Reed.
"We were missing a couple, McCarthy and McEveley were carrying knocks from the weekend and Baxter was struggling so we mixed it up again and it was pleasing that we could record another clean sheet - Mark Howard has not had a lot of work to do, the defence protected him well.
"What is pleasing is that a few lads are now hitting a little form, the likes of Scougall and Murphy, and we are also encouraged because we are rising up the table. This is a decent run we are on but I don't think we've hit full potential yet."
