Andre Villas-Boas believes it is important for Tottenham Hotspur to claim a first win after being held to a 1-1 home draw by West Bromwich Albion.
The former Chelsea boss started his Spurs reign with defeat at Newcastle United last weekend, but had looked set to mark his first home match with victory.
Benoit Assou-Ekotto broke the deadlock on 74 minutes, but West Brom snatched a point through James Morrison's last-minute goal.
Villas-Boas was frustrated not to take all three points and is looking for his players to be more ruthless in front of goal.
"It is very, very important to get that first win but there are still 36 games ahead of us," Villas-Boas said.
"We have one more point than we did this time last year. The players have been excellent. They have been receptive and there is a good feeling about what we are doing.
"We are just waiting for the results to accompany us a little bit more. We have been working well during the week, trying to prepare and get the result.
"Now we just have to be a bit more aggressive in front of goal. We have to finish the chances we have.
"It was frustrating not to get something from the first half today. We created lots of opportunities and we were extremely attacking.
"We could have got something from the first half but we didn't so it was a pity we conceded that goal right at the end."
