Jeff Hendrick has backed Derby to return to form despite their recent dismal form which has seen them lose the last five games.
The midfielder insists that confidence is high in the Rams camp, but County are now just four points above the Championship relegation spots.
Nigel Clough's side last recorded a win at the end of October when they defeated Portsmouth at home, but Irishman Hendrick is positive that Derby can end their miserable run against Crystal Palace on Friday night.
"All we needed was a break for a chance to get that goal," he told the club's official website.
"We didn't manage it but I thought we played very well and we have to use that as a big positive.
"That performance will lift us going into the game on Friday and we know if we play like that again we'll have a great chance of getting three points.
"The confidence is still there and we'll head to London confident and determined to get three points."
