Macarthur coach Ante Milicic saluted the character of his players as they put a tough couple of months behind them to beat Adelaide United 4-1.
The Bulls had set their sights on winning the A-League title this season but have been on a poor run of form that has seen them slide down the ladder.
Macarthur had not won a game since they beat the Newcastle Jets 2-1 back on 19th December but returned to winning way with Saturday's comfortable win over the Reds.
They did not get off to the greatest of starts with Craig Goodwin giving Adelaide United a 1-0 lead but Milicic's men came roaring back.
Ulises Davila was the inspiration for the Bulls and although he did not score, the Mexican was pulling the strings and had a hand in all of the goals.
Apostolos Giannou, Craig Noone, former Reds striker Al Hassan Toure and Michael Ruhs did find the back of the net and Milicic had nothing but praise for his players.
"Even when we were a goal down I thought we started quite well, we didn't panic, we remained calm and then in the end the subs made a great impact," Milicic told AAP.
"When we went up we were confident as well. It was very pleasing that we just didn't sort of sit back, we wanted more, the boys seemed to be enjoying themselves out there.
"I'm very pleased for the playing group because it's been a real difficult couple of months for us."
Macarthur will now look to keep the good run going when they face Perth Glory on Wednesday night.
