Dan Harding is confident Southampton will bounce back quickly from their dismal 2-0 home defeat to Rochdale.
Managerless Saints were left with just four points from as many games following Saturday's reverse but Harding says there are reasons for optimism.
The left-back said: "It's not all doom and gloom. Of course we would like to be at the top and looking down, but we're not.
"We've got something that we want to achieve this year, and we want to get that right.
"It was frustrating against Rochdale, but we can't let that affect us. We've obviously not had the start that we wanted to have, so it's up to us as players to put it right."
