Injuries to key players had forced Bruce to switch to a 3-5-2 recently and the Tigers used the system again during their 2-1 win over Bristol City on Saturday.
Aluko, who has hit the back of the net four times this season, says Bruce's 'brave' move is reaping rewards.
"He's found a formation in 3-5-2, which a lot of managers wouldn't play, and it's been brave," Aluko told the Hull Daily Mail.
"People have criticised it but he's stuck with it. If the players don't believe in what we do then there's no point in turning up, you'd get beat every week.
"He's given us a formation to work with and we believe it can win us games. That gives you a lot of confidence."
