Hope Powell was pleased overall following England's 4-0 win over Slovenia in their UEFA Women's Championship qualifying group match at Swindon.
"The main thing is that we got the three points," she said. "We couldn't finish the job against Serbia so it was quite nice to do it this time.
"We were a bit sloppy at times and we discussed that at half time, but we kept going and tried to push on and score more goals. I still think we could have scored a lot more, we had opportunities and just need to be a bit more clinical. I'd be worried if we weren't creating the chances, though. The positive thing is that we got three points and also kept a clean sheet.
"We worked really hard after the Serbia game and the players were keen to show that they were better than that result, with no disrespect to Serbia."
Rachel Williams netted her first international goal after coming on as a late substitute. "It was nice for Rachel [to score]," said Hope. "I wanted to give her another go. That experience will have done her some good and hopefully she will grow in confidence.
"I said to her, go and be a hero, and hopefully if she works hard at her game she will be one for the future. But it's not just about her, there are other players pushing to get into this squad."
Rachel Yankey got the ball rolling with the first goal and she admitted that the players wanted to get the Serbia game out of their systems. "It was a huge disappointment in Serbia, it could have been 6-0," she said, "but we only had ourselves to blame.
"The main thing tonight was making sure we got the win and we didn't want the Serbia game to happen again."
