Tim Krul feels Newcastle United are now 'back on track' following the return to fitness of several influential players.
Newcastle recently endured a run of just one win in eight Premier League games and also failed to score in four consecutive matches.
However, Loic Remy's late winner secured a home victory over Aston Villa towards the end of last month and Newcastle followed up that success with a 4-1 thrashing of Hull City at the weekend.
Though the match was overshadowed by manager Alan Pardew's attempt to headbutt Hull midfielder David Meyler, the result kept the Magpies in the hunt for European qualification.
Krul believes Newcastle demonstrated their quality at the KC Stadium and have now breathed life back into their season.
"It was an important result for us," said the Dutch keeper in The Sun. "It was massive to get another away win and I think we really showed our quality.
"It's a great feeling to get two wins on the bounce. It was nice to celebrate with the fans as well because we have had a bad month but we've managed to kick-start our season again.
"I think we can go into the next games with a lot of confidence. The boys are going away on international duty now but two wins on the bounce and we are back on track.
"There was a lot of negativity and rightly so but I think it was also a little bit unfair.
"We had to cope without Coloccini, Tiote and Remy, Gouffran was injured for a while and, of course, Cabaye leaving was a blow.
"I don't care what people say, they are all big, big players for us and I think people forgot we were missing them during that bad month.
"It is hard for any team to cope when players like that are missing. Now they are back and we've managed to turn it around. They give that extra quality and that showed."
