Josh Wright says the squad are sticking together and believes they can take positives from the defeat to Bradford last week into Saturday’s game at Scunthorpe United.
A 90th minute penalty against Bradford denied Blues a point last weekend after a good second-half performance from Phil Brown’s side.
Wright said: “You come into times like this in your career, during seasons and it’s all about remaining positive and sticking together. That’s what we’ve got in abundance.
"It’s a great group, from the staff to the players and the fans and it’s up to us to stick together.
“I thought we were very unlucky on Saturday not to get at least a point out of the game.
“We know if we keep playing like that, keep putting that effort in and that desire and quality we showed then we will pick up positive results.
“It’s all about staying in and around it.
“This is a crucial period because we all know the games that we’ve got. There’s a lot of games and we know where they are in the league.
“I think we proved against one of the biggest sides in the division and probably one of the best that we went up against them and for me we deserved something from it, albeit we were at home.
“We now need to prove that away from home now and let’s hope we can do that, starting on Saturday.”
Wright returns to Glanford Park this weekend to face his old side where he holds happy memories of his two years.
“I had a good couple of years up there. We were in the Championship then and the first year was very positive and we managed to stay up, probably against the odds.
“Personally, it was a very good year for myself and then even the second year we enjoyed a few good cup ties and we battled away but fell short in the end.
“But it was two very good years that I had there. It’s a great club, a family club and a great part of the country and I really enjoyed my time.”
