Skiverton said: "I'm really pleased. Brentford are a good side but we contained them well and could have had more than two goals," he said.
"I was really confident and I have learned through my years as a player that if things are not going well you have to keep working hard. My team have done just that. They passed the ball well out of the back and kept it well."
He added: "Our corners and free kicks have been frustrating but this was what I wanted.
"Craig Alcock may not be the biggest, but he showed how to run in and attack the ball and his bullet-header came from making runs like that."
