"We were totally dominant on the football.
"You are a wee bit apprehensive at half time, but to get the second goal, you think game won.
"But we stopped playing after the second goal and I was a little disappointed in our second-half performance."
"I was delighted with the way they played in the second half. The heads could have gone down.
"It was a goal fit to win any game. I was kicking myself as I had Eremenko sitting beside me, but Sammy Clingan has that in his locker and it was a great free-kick.
"It wasn't a great way to start my time in charge, but the players showed tremendous character.
"That was the way we started the season. We played with a lot of energy."
If results work out, Hearts could have a chance of clinching the Championship title and promotion on 5 April against Rangers at Ibrox. However, head coach Robbie Neilson has just admitted on BBC Radio Scotland that nerves are showing at the moment as that finishing line gets closer.
At the bottom of the Championship, Cowdenbeath's win at Dumbarton takes them three points clear of ninth-placed Alloa Athletic, with Livingston another three points adrift after their two rivals lost.
In the Championship, Hearts' 1-0 victory extends their lead over neighbours Hibernian to 20 points.

"If I am a Motherwell fan, I would be panicking today. Going from such a high under Stuart McCall last season, they got an initial bounce from new manager Ian Baraclough, but where is their next win coming from?"
With that victory, Ross County have moved to within three points of Motherwell and St Mirren. We now have a real battle in prospect for that bottom, automatic relegation place and the play-off spot for whoever finishes 11th.
"We felt we had to change the system and have a real go.
"We started with two strikers and they caused Motherwell all kinds of problems.
"It is a very important result, and its great to draw Motherwell closer to us, but we've got to carry that on.
"We know exactly what we have to do and how tough it is going to be, but performances like that will go a long way."
Dundee's late winner against Partick Thistle means the Dens Park outfit leapfrog St Johnstone into sixth place. Kilmarnock also secured the three points late on to stay within four points of Dundee as the battle for a top-six finish hots up.
Dundee United's late defeat in Kilmarnock means they slip six points adrift of third-top Inverness, although they do have a game in hand over Caley Thistle. European qualification via the Premiership moved a little further out of reach for United today.
Inverness Caley Thistle survived a late scare to consign St Mirren to a club record 15th game without a home win and move level with second-top Aberdeen.
In the absence of the substituted Alexei Eremenko, Sammy Clingan curls a delightful free-kick into the net to surely claim a dramatic win for Kilmarnock.
Marc McAusland heads just wide of the Inverness goal following a set piece. Was that St Mirren's last chance for parity?
Gary Harkins sets up what looks like being Dundee's winner as he weaves his way into the box before rolling the ball into the path of fellow summer signing Paul McGowan to fire the home side ahead.
At Rugby Park, Dundee United look like a side that have lost their main two creative forces and substitute Nathan Eccleston has a chance of a dream Kilmarnock debut, but the former Partick Thistle striker, who signed this morning, blasts over from the edge of the penalty box.
Ross County have weathered the storm a bit and look like holding out for a vital win over Motherwell.
Jim Goodwin seeks to add to his and St Mirren's tally with a free-kick. It's well struck but wide.
We haven't heard much from Dens Park, but reporter Scott Davie is saying it has been an appalling second half.
Josh Magennis flashes another opportunity wide in front of goal. Kilmarnock cannot afford to keep spurning these chances if they want to make the top six.
Fraser Kerr reignites Motherwell's challenge in Dingwall as the defender rises to head home a Conor Grant corner.
Ivan Hamilton @IvanHamilton12: "Massive game tomorrow hoping the Dons can win at Hamilton."
Jim Goodwin powerfully meets a corner from the right with a header to reduce St Mirren's deficit.
That's Ross County well on their way to reducing the gap between themselves and Motherwell at the bottom of the table to three points. Ian Baraclough took over after Stuart McCall's departure a couple of months ago suggesting that their aim should be winning the league. At this rate, the title they will be chasing is the Championship next season.
Debutant Raffaele de Vita extends the Ross County lead with a rasping left-foot drive from Michael Gardyne cross.
Ryan Christie finishes off a sweeping move with a well taken finish on the right to double the Inverness lead.
Raffaele de Vita floats in a free-kick and Paul Quinn sends a powerful looping header over the goalkeeper into the net.
It's all one-way traffic at Rugby Park and it's coming from the home side. After Josh Magennis fires over, Tope Obadeyi is inches away with connecting as the ball flashes across goal.
Nice effort from Inverness midfielder Ryan Christie, who swivels well around 20 yards out and curls a shot not far wide of Mark Ridgers' goal.
Conor Grant puts Motherwell level as the on-loan January signing from Everton curls in a free-kick.
Craig Johnston equalises with something that could barely be called a shot. The youngster appears to slip but pokes it forward, Goalkeeper Radoslaw Cierzniak is obviously expecting something more forceful and he dives past the ball and it slips over the line.
Josh Magennus has one goal today, but he could have had a hat-trick. This time, the Kilmarnock forward bullets a close-range header straight at goalkeeper Radoslaw Cierzniak.
Jackson Irvine heads over as County almost stretch their lead early in the second half.
