Liam Rosenior is confident Hull can turn their fortunes round this week when they embark on two npower Championship games in a four-day period.
The Tigers are only out of the bottom three on goal difference following Saturday's last-minute defeat to local rivals Scunthorpe and take on Leeds at Elland Road on Tuesday, then Preston at Deepdale on Friday.
Former Fulham defender Rosenior, a free signing from Reading last month, said: "Luckily for us we've got another game on Tuesday and so we can't think too much about the disappointment.
"It will be another local derby, so we want to put Saturday behind us and put things right.
"The quality is there and I have the faith that we can turn things around. It's a tough time at the moment and we've all got to stick together. We need better performances to get better results.
"The great thing about this league is that when you have a bad result, there is the chance to put it right quickly and that's what we want to do."
