Goalkeeper Scott Bevan has admitted Bristol Rovers hit "rock bottom" last month after being booed off at Memorial Stadium.
The Pirates were given a hostile reception from the club's fans following their 2-0 home defeat to lowly Barnet on November 19, their fourth league loss in five League Two matches.
However, Bevan and his team-mates have since bucked that trend with 1-1 draws against Southend and Swindon and a 6-1 thrashing of AFC Totton in the FA Cup.
"I think a few of us felt that maybe we'd hit rock bottom when we lost at home to Barnet," Bevan told the Bristol Evening Post.
"We felt the world was on top of us and it served to pull us close together. We've put our shields up and pledged to get through this together. I think it has served to strengthen our mentality as a team and it has made us a more resilient proposition.
"I've noticed something within the team in the last few weeks. It's as if something has just clicked. We are getting closer to knowing exactly what each other is about now and I think that is showing in our performances."
