Jack Colback insists no-one at Sunderland will be allowing panic to set in following an early season dip in form.
The Black Cats have picked up just one point from their opening two Premier League fixtures, with their last outing ending in a derby day defeat to local rivals Newcastle.
That result was followed by a Carling Cup humbling at the hands of Championship side Brighton.
Top flight new boys Swansea are next on the agenda for the Black Cats, and they are determined to avoid a hat-trick of defeats.
Colback is confident they can pick up a result against the Swans, with a recent wobble having done little to dent the confidence of those in Steve Bruce's camp.
The 21-year-old midfielder said: "I don't think people should be panicking.
"There's a bit of pressure on, but people have got to come out fighting and push on.
"There's only been a couple of games and we went to Anfield and got a draw, which shows there's a lot of ability in the side.
"We've shown in every game we've played that we can create chances. So we'll go to Swansea with a lot of confidence."
Colback's fellow midfielder Craig Gardner is also confident that a reversal in fortune is just around the corner.
He said: "To go out of the cup this early is not good but we have to put it behind us quickly.
"It is hard to take after Saturday, too. We need to put that behind us. We had 1,200 fans at Brighton. We have to thank them.
"When we get the goals, the points will come. It is not far away."
