Truro City boss Lee Hodges felt his side deserved their 2-0 win over Tonbridge in the Blue Square Bet South.
Marcus Martin's 47th-minute penalty and a Kieffer Moore strike a minute before time secured the victory.
"We got what we deserved - we created a lot of chances and looked solid at the back," he told BBC Radio Cornwall.
"We were causing them problems with Kieffer and Watto (Andy Watkins) and when the ball came back Ashey (Jake Ash) was heading everything."
Hodges reserved special praise for Moore, who scored his sixth goal of the campaign.
"That's Kieffer Moore, you don't know what he's going to do," he added.
"At times he can frustrate, but at times he can set the world alight and win a game in an instant, he's a special talent."
And Hodges says the win, which brings bottom-of-the-table Truro to within eight points of their nearest rivals, will boost his side going into the busy December period.
"We'll take a lot of heart from today," he added.
"It was nice not only to win the game but to keep a clean sheet as well, it was a nice way to walk off the pitch."
