Swansea boss Brendan Rodgers was delighted to see striker Luke Moore break his duck in the 3-0 victory over Doncaster.
Moore, an £850,000 signing from Derby in January, completed the scoring 12 minutes from time to keep the Welsh side firmly in the hunt for promotion to the Premier League.
Scott Sinclair bagged an early opener with Ashley Williams also on target before Moore found the net on his eighth appearance for the Liberty Stadium side.
Rodgers said: "A goalscorer not scoring is like a hungry person without food. It's been difficult for Luke but he has kept working hard and has the trust of his team-mates.
"But the goal should relieve the pressure on him. Hopefully it will give his confidence a boost and he can kick on and score many more goals for us.
"The performance was excellent and it shows the progress we have made. I thought Ashley Williams and Alan Tate were outstanding but there is always room for improvement.
"It was good to get an early goal after their result in midweek. Scoring then was probably a setback mentally for them. You can see why Scott Sinclair has scored so many goals because of his desire to get in the box.
"We have moved up one place in the table which is always good to see."
Sean O'Driscoll admitted his Doncaster side were beaten by the better team.
He said: "It was difficult. We have matched Swansea in the past but we were no match for them here today.
"It was a struggle with 13 players out. But the one saving grace was the players kept going.
"There are 14 games to go but I haven't got a team. We have been pulling rabbits out of the hat all season but I didn't have a Plan B today.
"Three of my substitutes were centre-halves. What I am going to do with them? I must have run over a black cat somewhere."
