The impressive 3-0 triumph over Wigan ended a nine-game winless streak, and a run during which Rovers had scored only twice in their last seven Sky Bet Championship matches.
But the display did not sway Dickov from his pre-game stance of wanting to strengthen his squad, particularly up front.
"The priority before the game was to bring in a striker on loan, and that hasn't changed," he said.
"I'd like to sign a couple, if possible, but we will concentrate this week on bringing one in before we go to Blackpool on Saturday."
Doncaster had recent signings Gabriel Taman and Abdoulaye Meite making their home debuts, and midfield anchorman Paul Keegan back after a long-term injury.
Dickov added: "I was loath to make excuses about injuries during the run we've had, but it's great to have players back and also strengthen the side by bringing one or two in.
"I'm delighted with the result, and the performance, and keeping a clean sheet.
"We've shown exactly what we are capable of today. There are 20 games left and we have to perform like that in every one.
"If we do, we won't have any problem at all staying out of the bottom three.
"Chris Brown was magnificent and deservedly scored a couple of goals, but he flogs himself to death every game and we need to bring someone in to help him out.
"James Coppinger's just come back from injury and I thought he was outstanding. When he plays like that he's as good as anything in the league.
"But the most important thing was we were outstanding as a team and, when we play like that, we can match anyone."
Doncaster never looked back after Chris Brown had fired them in front in the seventh minute and, after Richie Wellens had added the second in the 52nd minute, Brown notched the third from the penalty spot after 69 minutes.
Wigan, undefeated in their previous eight games, were well beaten and manager Uwe Rosler admitted Doncaster were worthy winners.
"We weren't at our best and I think the run of games we've had recently caught up with us," he said.
"The third goal came from a mistake, but I felt we had enough chances in the first half to go in front.
"In the second half we didn't have enough to get back in the game. We looked leggy and we couldn't turn it around.
"We never really got the ball down or had enough penetration to hurt them. All credit to Doncaster - they deserved to win.
"It's how we bounce back now that's important and I'm looking forward to seeing a reaction from my players because collectively we were not at the races today."
