Manager Allan Johnston hailed his Kilmarnock side following their dramatic late win at Motherwell.
Craig Slater fired the winner after Kilmarnock came from behind to secure victory at Fir Park.
"The manner in which we did it as well, I thought second half especially we passed the ball really well," said Johnston.
"We ended up worthy winners I thought. It was a real team performance today; I think we defended better as a team."
And Johnston praised winner Slater for his dramatic late effort.
"I'm absolutely delighted for him, he's a great lad as well and you can see he's improving," said the Killie boss.
"In every game you can see he's getting better; he takes the ball and never seems to lose it and that's the sign of a good player."
