Caretaker manager Keith Millen still believes his Bristol City team need to improve defensively after watching them beat Barnsley 5-3 at Ashton Gate.
The Robins were forced to hit back from 2-1 down before claiming the three points, Millen's first victory since he stepped in following the departure of Gary Johnson.
He said after the high-scoring encounter: "That was some game. It was the perfect start and we wanted to get out of the traps quickly.
"We then gave them two soft goals again, although their second goal was clearly a free-kick routine they've worked on.
"I walked in the changing room at the break and it was like a hospital wing.
"We had several players nursing injuries but I can't praise those lads enough because they all wanted to carry on. We seem to play better with injuries.
"I'm not injured but I'm exhausted. To score five, you've got to win those sorts of games.
"We had a couple of scares near the end, but we were positive in our thinking and that's why we scored five goals."
