Sheffield United are dealing exclusively in binary figures of late, and it is doing nothing for Neill Collins' heart-rate.
Collins returned to the Blades side as they registered a third successive 1-0 win League One against Portsmouth on Monday night and their sixth of the season.
Those narrow victories have been joined by six 1-1 draws, four of which were after United surrendered a lead, and the 29-year-old defender wants his team to give themselves more breathing space in games.
"It's a perfect score at the end of the game but during the game it can be so fragile," Collins said.
"If you are playing against any team in the world then it only takes a set-piece or something and they can get a goal, so we are very aware of that. But at the minute we are seeing games out well.
"Football is a funny game, the minute you start thinking you are defensively solid you'll go and concede five and you won't have done a lot different. So we are not getting carried away.
"As a centre-half I know it only takes a bit of magic or an error to concede, so I would much rather we be winning two or three-nil."
