Venezia coach Paolo Zanetti was proud of their 2-1 win at Torino.
Toro had the lead via Josip Brekalo before Ridgeciano Haps and Domen Crnigoj struck for the visitors.
“As we expected, Torino were very aggressive at the start and our distances were all wrong. At that point, I said let’s just mirror their tactics, go one-on-one all over the field and make it a series of duels,” Zanetti told Sky Sport Italia.
“We needed in any way to pull something else out the bag, because we’ve been struggling lately, but we saw when the lads have this attitude, they can do anything.”
Venezia are now out of the bottom three.
Zanetti also said: ““We’ve got a game in hand, so it’s best not to look at the table right now, or it’ll be distracting. We’ve faced the top five teams in the last six rounds, so it’s natural we might have some difficulties.
“At the first game that was less tough, we picked up an impressive victory. It’s a great result, but above all a strong show of character from the team.
“We had a strong mentality to earn promotion last season, but it was decided to transform the squad, bring in 20 new players, so it took time for us all to communicate with each other and rebuild that mentality.
“There have still been a lot of errors in the late stages of matches, and we got lucky this evening on the free kick, as that could’ve been another equaliser.”
