Livesey said: "It went well for us. We all worked really hard. We've got a week where we don't have a game now so we can get ourselves rested and take it into next Saturday and what will be another tough game."
He added: "It's a good result for us, especially after the three games that we have just had where we didn't do ourselves justice.
"It's nice to get back to winning ways and I think it's a result that we thoroughly deserved.
"Defensively we were much better. We had it out after the Hartlepool game and we told each other that it wasn't acceptable. We've worked hard since that game on being solid and on keeping our shape and I think we looked a lot better."
