After a disappointing start, the Citizens have reached eighth place in the table and Powell says this week's hard-fought 2-0 win over Gwynedd neighbours Porthmadog showed grit and determination.
"We weren’t firing on all cylinders, but I was probably more pleased with that win than the previous three," the City boss told the Bangor Mail.
"It’s not all about performances, it’s about results too and I’m delighted we kept another clean sheet and made it four wins in a row.
"We didn’t play as well as we can, but we got the three points and that’s what mattered.
"We had a few players who had been under the weather over Christmas, but they were prepared to go out there and battle, while we lost Dave Swanick and Peter Hoy to injury just after half time, but we came through it.
"We are hitting form at just the right time, winning is a good habit and one we want to keep.
"We’re going into 2010 positive and looking forward to our next big game, which is at Porthmadog on Saturday.
"We know again how hard they will make it for us, but the confidence is high now and the players cannot wait for the next game."
Powell has not ruled out new signings in the January transfer window and says he won't be looking at players from the domestic league because they are likely to be cup-tied.
"We’ve got our eyes on a couple of central midfielders playing in the Unibond who we’d like to bring on board if they are available," he added.
