The Bit O' Red dispatched of Derry City on Saturday evening at the Showgrounds, winning by a score of 4-1, with goals coming from Raffaele Cretaro, Lee Lynch and a Ryan McBride own goal.
"I asked the players to go and do the basics right and that is what we did," Baraclough said after the game. "The result between Drogheda and St Patrick's [Athletic] on Friday night helped. Look, it has been a great weekend for us, so I asked the boys to go and do our job. We set about it in the right way.
"We got our rewards by letting them make mistakes and then we were clinical when the mistakes happened. It has disheartened the chasing pack because there are less games to go, less windows of opportunity."
The former Scunthorpe boss also moved to praise everyone involved with the club after being impressed by the commitment shown by the management committee, players and fans to improve the club's fortunes.
He said: "These players are driving this club forward. They deserve more. They deserve this glory. From what I have seen since I have been here, there has been a lot of hard work done by the management committee, by the fans, to build the club.
"I respect these fans, who spend their hard-earned money to come all the way out here, week in and week out. It is our job to put a performance on for them. I want them to have a smile on their face," concluded the Sligo boss.
