Oldham Athletic midfielder Dean Furman believes the Latics can steer clear from danger now that they are playing games regularly again.
The League One strugglers, who sit just three places and two points above the relegation zone, managed to fulfil just one fixture in a month due to the frosty conditions this winter.
Furman believes that Oldham can return to form now that they are confident of playing every Saturday due to the improvement in weather conditions.
"The weather didn't help matters because we didn't get to see grass for a good couple of weeks, but you just have to dust yourselves down and do what you can," the South African told skysports.com.
"It has been difficult to get games on, but hopefully we have seen the last of it and we can start getting some momentum going again."
Furman joined the Latics on a free transfer from Scottish giants Rangers last summer after failing to establish himself in the first team at Ibrox and, despite the club's struggles this season, he is confident that he made the right decision to leave the Gers.
He added: "It has been a difficult season and we are disappointed in our lowly position in the table, but at the same time I am delighted to be here playing my football.
"We've got a lot to look forward to in the second half of the season and hopefully I can do my bit to help get this club where it should be instead of scrapping away at the bottom of the table."
