Exeter City manager Paul Tisdale says his side have got to impose themselves after their 4-0 defeat by Huddersfield saw them stay bottom of League One.
The Grecians have won just once in their last five League One games, only scoring in the 2-0 win over Oldham at St James Park on 1 October.
"We were playing against the best side in the league and the scoreline looks pretty bleak," Tisdale told BBC Devon.
"I'm not bemoaning bad luck, but we need to make it go our way."
The Grecians boss continued: "We had large patches of good play but the scoreline tells the story."
Tisdale also said that had his side taken one of their chances after half-time, the result could have been very different.
"We looked a positive side, we got forward well and had a couple of chances," he explained.
"It was disappointing to have finished that first period of the second-half three down when arguably we had enough to create an opportunity or two to make it 2-1.
"But that's the way things are at the moment," he added.
