Swindon Town Captain Olly Lancashire is expecting a response from his team-mates against Notts County on Saturday.
The Reds welcome the second-placed Magpies to The Energy Check County Ground tomorrow (3pm Kick-Off) looking to bounce back following the 5-0 defeat to Luton Town on Boxing Day.
And Lancashire was in defiant mood ahead of the game as Town look to sign off 2017 on a high note.
"We've played against Notts County before this season, it was a close game and we lost to a penalty in the end," he said.
"We've got to approach it as a new game.
"We've been in all week and we've been working on a game-plan to try and get a result.
"We're confident of doing that.
"I remember four weeks ago we were top of the form table and everyone was buzzing after seven wins in eight games.
"Football is full of highs and lows and you've got to take it - we're feeling it in there.
"You can either sit down and feel sorry for yourself or you can go out fighting and we'll certainly be fighting.
"We've got 35 points at the halfway point of the season, it isn't a terrible position to be in and we're ready to attack the second-half of the season and try to get into the promotion positions."
