Dexter Blackstock insists Nottingham Forest's slow start to the season is no cause for concern.
The Reds have rather stumbled out of the blocks this term, taking one point from their opening two Championship fixtures and crashing out of the Carling Cup at the hands of League Two outfit Bradford.
They are, however, producing enough during their games to suggest that results will come sooner rather than later.
Sunday's 1-1 draw with Leeds was a prime example of how fortune is not favouring Billy Davies' men at present, with enough opportunities created to have wrapped up all three points.
Blackstock, though, is confident that the goals and performances will come and is refusing to read too much into the early struggles.
"There is no panic, that is the message," he told the Nottingham Evening Post, after opening his account for the season against Leeds.
"There are 44 games left and nobody is worried that we have not won either of the first two in the league.
"Performances have been good and anyone who watched the game will know what we can do. We just need to keep going; if we have a bit more luck things will change for us.
"If Earnie's shots at Burnley or against Leeds - which hit the post - had gone in, rather than bouncing away, things might have been different.
"We would rather have more points, but that is how things go sometimes.
"We have had massive chances in the first few games, which shows that we are doing something right.
"And that will change as well, because we have players here who can score goals, not just up front, but in midfield as well.
"We are not worried about that, there is no panic here."
