Brentford take on one of only five teams below them in the Championship form table on Saturday – and manager Dean Smith has told his players to make sure it's they, and not Norwich City, who are celebrating a turnaround.
While the Bees have only won one and lost four of their last six games, hosts Norwich, among the favourites for a return to the top flight, have lost five and drawn one to slip right out of the promotion picture.
But just as, the Fulham game aside, Smith believes his side does not deserve to be on a losing streak, he believes Norwich have been equally unlucky and is expecting a tough game at Carrow Road.
He said: “We've lost three in a row and Norwich have lost five in a row, but that doesn't make us poor teams. Anyone who plays us or Norwich will know they're in for a tough game.
“We shouldn't have lost to either Blackburn or Birmingham, while Norwich had a player sent off in the first minute against QPR and didn't deserve to lose to Derby.
“They have got very good players all over the pitch, and we will need a performance in the same magnitude as last Saturday's if we're going to win the game.
“Norwich have hit a blip just like us. It doesn't take a lot to get out of it, and we've got to make sure it's us that comes out of it rather than them on Saturday.”
Despite a demoralising defeat against Birmingham in a game they should have won last time out, Smith has focused this week on the positives from that game and how they can take them into this weekend.
He added: “I'm not a big one for long chats in dressing rooms after the game. It's too emotional, and you can't change anything at that time, so we had a long chat on Monday instead. My feeling was sometimes we can catastrophise defeats, and that in itself can lead to a demise in confidence,
“For me, it was very much talking about the positives from that game, and how we made a top four team's coaching staff come and apologise to me after the game for what they called daylight robbery – their words, not mine.
“We talked about the chances we created, how we created them, and that if we keep creating opportunities we will be okay, because if they dry up it is a problem. Sometimes you need one to go in off a backside to get the confidence flowing again, one of those wouldn't go amiss on Saturday.”
