Darren Jarvis highlighted the key factors behind his first win as Holbeach United boss.
He felt the combination of “heart, commitment, determination and a bit of professionalism” proved vital as the Tigers ended a run of five games without a victory.
Jarvis admitted: “It was harder than it should have been.
“The pitch made it hard work and we have still got a few players missing.
“It was a team effort with a couple of lads coming in who haven’t been here.
“Charley Sanders can hold the ball up front and create chances for the likes of Jamie Clarke and Andrew Tidswell.
“We’ve also brought in Dan Worthington from the youth team at Boston United who have been very supportive.
“I must thank Steve Welsh and Dennis Greene for their help as Corey Newman is also coming in next week.
“We will try to keep the bulk of the players here but one or two may also have an opportunity at a higher level.
“We can’t help having one eye on competing next season but we want the lads to enjoy their football with smiles on their faces.
“These are early days but I’m really pleased for everyone at the club. Let’s hope this win can kick-start a run of good form.”
Craig Parker and Niall Delahoy will be back for the home game against Sleaford Town on Wednesday while Danny Steadman may be available after injury.
