It was certainly a performance of some verve and enterprise following the home side's grabbing of a first half lead, after which the team clicked into gear and produced some fine passages of football.
"The most pleasing thing from the players' point of view is that we enjoyed it and played well," explained Simon.
"For the first time in a while we were passing the ball well and enjoying it. I think you could see from the goal celebrations that it is great to be back playing that way.
"That was as important, if not more important, than getting the win against Birmingham.
"After the game everyone was buzzing a bit because we were back playing our football and it was enjoyable to play in.
"We created chances and can hopefully carry on like that until the end of the season."
Simon added that he expected the award of either a free-kick on the edge of the area or a penalty when Lucas Radebe felled him in the final seconds of the game.
"I don't know, it was right on the line and could have gone either way."
Simon Davies revealed that the team greatly enjoyed the football played at Leeds on Saturday.
