Despite the victory being the Shakers' first in four, they are now unbeaten in 11 League Two matches.
Knill said: "Everybody else will think about that (the play-offs) but I'm just looking at the fact that we have taken five points from nine against really good sides.
"If someone had told me that we would have taken five points against the three teams we've just played against I'd have taken that. I'd have probably even taken three points.
"Anybody would take 11 games unbeaten. We just need to extend this unbeaten run as far as we can."
