The gaffer was delighted with AFC's "well deserved" point against promotion-chasing Tadcaster Albion.
The 0-0 draw with Albion lifted the Bulls up to 17th in the NPL East Division table and extended their unbeaten run to four games.
"Today it showed again how much we've improved over the last month or so," said manager Rudy Funk, "it's that desire and endeavour to get us out of the position that we were in a few weeks ago.
"I'm so pleased for the lads, they responded terrifically well against a very good Tadcaster side. On reflection, just through our hard work the point was well deserved."
Assistant manager Mark Ward insisted that credit should go to the men on the pitch rather than to the management: "It's down to the lads, really, believing in what we're doing and staying positive through everything.
"We've had some comings and goings this season, things haven't worked out and we've dealt with them as professionally as we could and we've carried on believing in what we do.
"We're not out of trouble yet, we're still in a battle, but we're asking the lads for consistency now in the performances."
With a trip to second-placed Brighouse Town on the horizon for the Bulls, Ward remained confident that his team can get a result considering good recent results against similar outfits.
"We can definitely compete with them, but we know we have to be at one hundred percent. If we're slightly off it, teams like them will punish us.
"We'll be going there full of spirit and and trying to get all three points."
