Kidderminster Harriers defender Andrew Fox says their tendency to let in late goals should disappear once they manage to "grind" out a win.
Harriers conceded an 83rd-minute equaliser in their 1-1 draw at Gateshead to extend their winless run to five National League games.
"I don't think this is going to be a trend," Fox, who is on loan at Harriers from Peterborough, said.
"It's just going to take one win where we grind it out and it's not pretty."
The point at the International Stadium did at least stop the losing run for Harriers, who avoided a fourth consecutive defeat.
"It's getting to a point where it's no-nonsense and we shut up shop and I think when we get one win it'll bring plenty," Fox told BBC Hereford and Worcester.
"It's obviously a shame to concede the way we did but there's a lot of encouragement and hopefully this can give us confidence going into the next few games.
"I've settled in well and am really enjoying it - the boys are easy to get on with and, on the pitch, it's coming for us."
