Bournemouth midfielder Marc Pugh believes the south coast outfit are finally starting to click together as a team.
The Cherries endured mass changes to their playing staff over the course of the summer, and began the 2011/12 League One campaign with just one win from their first seven outings.
However, a recent revival has seen Lee Bradbury's team take 10 points from their last four games - and Pugh is delighted with the way the team has come together ahead of Tuesday's FA Cup first-round replay at Gillingham.
"We've had a lot of changes this season and things were always going to take time to gel," he told the club's official website. "But I think everyone can see that is what is happening now.
"You could see on Saturday (Bournemouth won 1-0 at Wycombe) that we are not giving the opposition back four a minute's peace and that helps the whole team because it's defending from the front.
"We are looking good now and clear of the bottom four, and now we look to progress in the FA Cup."
