St Johnstone winger Felipe Morais insists no one is panicking at the club despite their winless start to the campaign.
The Saints twice came back from a goal down to level against Dundee United on Saturday before slipping to a 3-2 defeat at McDiarmid Park.
The loss saw the newly-promoted side slip to the foot of the table without a win to their name six games in to the season.
Although St Johnstone find themselves in the drop zone early on, the one-time Chelsea youngster believes a win is just around the corner.
Morais is happy with the team's attacking play, but admits they must tighten up at the back if the wins are to come sooner rather than later.
"I'm not concerned we haven't won a league game yet," said Morais.
"The most important factor is we are creating lots of opportunities in front of goal and we'll get wins if we stop conceding so many at the other end.
"If we have to score three or four goals just to win a game it will obviously be tough. But if we can become a team that is hard to beat then I'm sure we'll be rolling in the victories.
"We have to pick ourselves up and next week at Hamilton is an opportunity to go and get our first win.
"This was a hard defeat to take. Even though they were always one ahead we still had chances to take something from the game.
"But if we keep conceding so many goals it's going to be hard to get the wins we're looking for.
"It's something we need to try to sort out for our own benefit."
