Forest came away from the King Power Stadium as 2-0 winners, ending Leicester's unbeaten home run in the process.
"I enjoyed it because it was a very important three points. But it's only three points, and there is no point at this stage of the season getting too down or too excited if you are in or out of the top six," he told BBC Sport.
"I'm just delighted as a manager to see the players take on board what they worked on last week.
"We worked very hard on the shape of the team and the tactics and the strength and weaknesses of the opposition."
Forest are now fifth in the Championship.
