John Coleman praised his team after they came from behind to beat Cambridge 3-2 at the Abbey Stadium.
Barry Corr opened the scoring for United in the 13th minute before Sean McConville found the top corner from the edge of the area on 29 minutes.
Luke Berry put Cambridge back in front but then Tom Davies scored his first league goal on 48 minutes and Josh Windass converted a penalty five minutes later.
“It would have been a good game for the neutral – it was end to end,” said Coleman.
“Cambridge put us under a lot of pressure and, in the first half, we gave the ball away cheaply.
“But in the second half we were excellent, we passed the ball well and created numerous opportunities.
“At half-time and trailing 2-1, I said it would show how much it meant to them to get promoted and these are the games you have got to get something out of. It was a bonus how early we got the goal in the second half and then we were on the front foot.
“There is a great togetherness, the lads rally around each other even those who aren’t playing, and it will take you a long way.
“That’s four wins out of five and, while we don’t set targets, we have got to make sure we are in and around the promotion places at Christmas and every time you get three points, it’s another game to tick off.”
