Alex Neil insists his Hamilton Academical side will recover from a run of four games without a victory.
"If we can cut out the defensive errors, we are in fine fettle at the moment," he said after the 4-2 defeat by Inverness Caledonian Thistle.
"It is just individual mistakes and decision making within the game and that will come with experience.
"I think my oldest defender today was 24 and they will learn from their mistakes."
Tony Andreu scored twice for Accies as they eyed a return to the top of the Scottish Premiership.
But it was Caley Thistle who claimed victory to leapfrog the visitors, who drop to third.
"When you haven't played poorly and conceded four goals, that's disappointing, but certainly three of the goals we could have done better - they were basic errors at the back," said manager Neil.
"That was the case against Partick Thistle as well and we're going to have to cut that out.

"But I thought there were lots of positives to take - another two goals away from home from Tony Andreu too.
"It is hard to take when you haven't played poorly and you've nothing to show for it.
"But we've got a young group, they've done terrifically well this season and I'm extremely proud of them.
"If they can cut out the errors, we will start picking up points again."
