Andreas Weimann believes Aston Villa can take encouragement from the fact that their young team battled back against Chelsea on Saturday.
Alex McLeish's squad has been so stretched in recent times that he has had to put his faith in youth, and it was an inexperienced line-up that took to the field over the weekend.
Villa ultimately went down 4-2 but only after giving the Blues a fright by pegging them back to 2-2 late in the game.
While Weimann accepts that Villa should never be pleased when they come away with nothing, he did see some positive signs for the future.
"We showed we can play football against Chelsea, even though we are only young players," the Austrian striker told Villa's official website.
"If we play like we played, we'll get a few more wins in."
The loss to Chelsea left Villa just five points clear of the relegation zone and Weimann admits they have been dragged into the scrap for Premier League safety, but he is confident of staying up.
He added: "We said after the game we're right in it now, but we have to stick together. We'll be all right.
"You can take the positives from the game, we're a young side but we came back against Chelsea.
"It was good - but we didn't get anything from the game.
"Being 2-0 down, no-one would have thought we'd get back, but when we did it was brilliant."
