Western Force flanker Matt Hodgson insists a first win of the season is "just around the corner".
Force taken on last season's beaten finalist the Chiefs on Saturday on the back of successive losses to the Brumbies and the Hurricanes.
The Chiefs, on the other hand, have won both their games - and have been scoring tries for fun as the 72-65 victory over the Lions highlighted.
But Hodgson insists that Force can finally record a first win of the season, with the fact the Chiefs conceded 65 points proving that they are vulnerable.
"We've played well in both games in patches, we just have to put an 80-minute performance behind us," Hodgson told the club's official website.
"If we do that, a win is just around the corner and we are really training towards that this week.
"We take from that score that they have a lot of attack, but it also showed that there is a great opportunity in their lack of defence that they showed on the weekend.
"We're mainly looking at our game this week so we can focus on getting what we want to do right."
