Manager Carl Fletcher said the result was more important than the performance following Plymouth Argyle's 1-0 win at Aldershot.
The Pilgrims now need just one more win to secure their Football League status after a tough year off the field.
"We didn't play well at all but I just don't care, we got the result and that's the main thing," Fletcher said.
"We got a bit of luck with the goal, but I don't care and I'm just pleased to get the win," he told BBC Devon.
Plymouth had to defend doggedly, especially in the second half as Aldershot had a number of chances and hit the woodwork.
"I said to the lads that if anyone questions their desire they'll have me to answer to because it was unbelievable.
"It was a great clean sheet, it was our third one-nil win at home on the spin.
"I'm delighted for the lads because they worked so hard and Aldershot couldn't have thrown much more at us," he added.
