John Mcmahon praised the winning mentality of his side after the reserves left it late to secure a 1-0 win over Burnley on Wednesday night.
Dani Pacheco's last-gasp free-kick fired the Reds into second place in the Barclays Premier Reserve League North and the boss felt his side's togetherness was the key to a fourth straight victory.
"The team spirit, the desire and the passion is unquestionable in this group," he told Liverpoolfc.tv. "Any footballer must have that. But it's nice to see such a good togetherness, which you could see from the goal celebration.
"It was a great finish to the game, but overall we are a bit disappointed to be honest. We set high standards here and we spoke about consistency before the game.
"It's difficult for young lads sometimes but we expect eights out of 10 for performance and not sixes and fives. I felt there were too many sixes and fives against Burnley."
McMahon was quick to acknowledge the free-kick prowess of Pacheco though, whose ability at set pieces proved to be decisive.
"He doesn't lack in confidence, does he?" he said. "His mentality is good because he missed one earlier, but you can see what he can do from free-kicks, which is fantastic for us."
As for Pacheco, he was delighted to score the winner and feels the Reds now have a never-say-die attitude that was lacking last season.
"I am very happy to score and we are more than happy with the three points," he said. "We worked hard for the whole match and we are delighted to win it in the last minute.
"The spirit is higher than it was last season. In this kind of game last year we probably we would lost it, so it was good to maintain the winning run and take the three points."
