Reading striker Jason Roberts is convinced they will record their first league win of the season in the near future and will slowly move away from the danger zone.
Roberts is hoping the Reading players can recover from their agonising Capital One Cup defeat when they threw away a four-goal lead and suffered a 7-5 reverse against Arsenal on Tuesday night.
The Royals face a crucial six-pointer when they face fellow strugglers QPR at Loftus Road on Sunday.
And the 34-year-old striker has no doubts there is enough spirit in the squad to see them turn their season around and put a few wins together in the next few weeks.
He said: "The performances have been better than the results, but that's the Barclays Premier League for you - sometimes you get punished and come away from a game wondering what you did wrong.
"We've got a strong squad here. Obviously we're new to the Premier League as a squad, but we have a belief in each other and in what we do every day.
"I think if we continue to keep that belief, we'll have a good chance and I'm sure that first win is on its way.
"Regardless of how thing go, we will always stick together, and I think that will always be the case. We've already done some amazing things together, against all odds in some respects when a lot of people doubted we could do it.
"If we can play the Reading way, the way we played all last season that got us success, I'm sure we will be able to make a dent in this division."
