Experienced midfielder Lee Bullock is confident Bradford's first win under manager Phil Parkinson is not too far away.
The Bantams have lost twice and drawn on three occasions since the ex-Charlton boss took the reins last month, with the latest 3-1 defeat at Crawley at the weekend leaving the side sitting third-from-bottom of League Two, just one point above the drop zone.
However, Bullock, who is currently sidelined through injury, told skysports.com no-one is panicking just yet about their lack of victories.
"Since Phil came in we have played some decent football, but the results haven't come," he said.
"We've played some decent teams, I suppose, but our performances have deserved more because bar the second half at Crawley it has been everything but the results.
"We know that we've got goals in us, so it is just a case of keeping a clean sheet now because that is the difference between winning and losing at the moment for us."
Lee Bullock Quotes of the week
"I'm sure it will come though, with the new signings gelling more with every game and the next win can't be too far away."
The Bantams next take on League Two newcomers AFC Wimbledon at Valley Parade on Saturday and Bullock is targeting a clean sheet from his team-mates.
"Hopefully, we can repeat the attacking display from our last home game on Saturday because we played some great football in the final third against Bristol Rovers and just do a lot better defensively," he said.
"We know that we've got goals in us, so it is just a case of keeping a clean sheet now because that is the difference between winning and losing at the moment for us.
"AFC Wimbledon are obviously a side we've never played against, so they are a relatively unknown quantity and I was looking forward to facing them, but that won't happen until the return fixture hopefully.
"Obviously, results breed confidence and in that respect the lads can't get a win under their belt soon enough, but they are all taking heart from the performances they've put on.
"It is always disappointing to come off the field without a win, but as long as we are playing well then it is important not to get too despondent."
