Joint-manager Jason Lee felt Boston United showed resilience to come from a goal down to beat Workington 2-1 at York Street in Blue Square Bet North.
The Pilgrims trailed to a 19th-minute Gareth Arnison goal but Lee headed them level just before half-time before Jordan Burrow netted a late winner.
Lee told BBC Lincolnshire: "We didn't start the game well but we're pleased.
"There would have been times earlier in the season when we would have struggled to get the three points."
Lee added: "I think we deserved the win. It wasn't as if we didn't try to press the game, to get in behind them and be positive.
"I think they would have been pleased with a 1-1 draw and that's what we have to deal with. In that respect we've turned the corner, we can dig in and get results."
