Huddersfield midfielder Anton Robinson said it is crucial Simon Grayson's side rediscover some form and momentum in time for the play-offs.
Robinson made his first start for Town in over a month on Monday in his first return to former club Bournemouth since his summer switch, but admitted afterwards that back-to-back defeats had just about put paid to Town's automatic promotion chances.
"Obviously it's a disappointing result for us, especially coming after the loss against Sheffield Wednesday," Robinson told the club's official website.
"It's important we get back to winning ways and back to playing good football for the play-offs. Promotion is all about ambition and we all want the same thing.
"It's inevitable that we're in the play-offs now, so it's important to try and get that momentum to take into them.
"We must get back to winning ways and start doing the right things again on the pitch. We want to be in good form going into the play-offs."
