Exeter City boss Paul Tisdale was happy with his side's performances over the festive period, even though they took only one point from three games.
A late equaliser from Richard Logan saw City draw 1-1 with Yeovil on Monday.
"One point from three games is not what we were hoping for but I'm actually very pleased with the performances over those games," he told BBC Radio Devon.
"There's not been much wrong with our three performances other than we've not taken our chances."
He added: "We created umpteen opportunities and snatched at shots or didn't deliver at crosses or didn't make the pressure pass around the box, but I've seen us do it before, it's not like we can't do it, it's just that we're edgy in those areas."
City are just one place off the League One relegation zone but have seen strikers Daniel Nardiello and Guillem Bauza return to full fitness over the Christmas period.
And Tisdale says he expects his side to pull away from the drop zone in the coming months.
"From the performances I've seen over the festive period I know there's something in this side.
"I know we've got what it takes to mount a good second half of the season.
"We've got to try and find a way of putting the ball in the net and with that confidence will build.
"Three months ago Daniel Nardiello couldn't stop scoring and today he rushed things, but I know he can do it so you have to keep faith with those players," he concluded.
