STANLEY striker Paul Mullin is sure Accrington can stop the rot and move back up the League Two table.
The Reds have suffered four successive League Two losses - Stanley's worst record since October 1998 - and have picked up nine points out of the last 27 to slip just four points above the drop zone.
But vice-captain Mullin is certain the Conference champions can be back on the up soon.
"Sometimes I feel like I sound like a broken record but I know we can turn it around," said the long serving hitman.
"We need to become hard to beat again and more resolute, especially when things go against us.
"I don't think we have deserved the four defeats, we haven't played that badly and acquitted ourselves quite well in them, but the results say we have lost.
"Talk is cheap though and we can't keep saying our luck will change.
"It is easy to say things aren't going our way but we have got to snap out of it and we can do it.
"No one's head has gone down at the club, everyone is bright and bubbly and we have got enough in the squad to turn it around. But it important we stay positive and stay in it together."
The striker hasn't had a regular partner up front this season but has linked up with midfielder Ian Craney recently - although that will all change if the midfielder's deal goes through today (Fri).
"Chances have been few and far between for me," said Mullin, top scorer for the last three seasons.
Mullin continued: "On Saturday, against Hartlepool, we didn't get the ball down and pass it like we can and then it makes every ball a fight. I am a tall centre forward but there are some equally tall centre halves and it makes it more like a wrestling match.
"And it is 50/50 whether the ref gives the foul to the striker or the defender.
"We have tried to counter that in training and work on things we can do differently but it does take time.
"We haven't won in a while so perhaps we now have just to concentrate on picking up at least a point and building on that."
Players have left the club but Mullin believes there is enough in the squad to grab the all-important win.
This is especially with new signings striker Leighton McGivern, who has now signed a contract until the end of the season, and winger Shaun Whalley who looks likely to start after both being on the bench in the late 2-1 loss to Hartlepool.
"Most of those on the fringe are hungry to play so it gives people a chance," said Mullin. "Leighton looks good in training, Andy Mangan is chomping at the bit to start again and Joel Byrom looks a quality player.
"Grimsby haven't had the best of starts and we have to play a few games now against the teams around us.
"We need to put a decent run together as the league is still close - you only have to look what Bury have done with a string of wins which has taken them towards the play-offs."
Mullin has got six goals this seasonbut hasn't scored a league goal since Mansfield on September 23.
"I don't care who scores as long as we win," said the 32-year-old. "It is always nice to chip in with the odd one here and there but as long as we win then I am not bothered."
