Michael Doyle is determined to stay in philosophical mood despite United's frustrating start in League One.
Speaking after the 2-0 defeat at Bradford on Saturday, the skipper remarked: "The game itself was fairly open, especially in the first-half, but we didn't take our chances and ultimately paid the price at the other end.
"We started the game brightly and won a lot of individual battles, but Nahki Wells proved to be the difference and we are learning a few harsh lessons this season.
"We are getting punished, especially on the road, for every little slip and that is something we must address and look to eradicate quickly.
"We are struggling with injuries too at the moment and unfortunately we aren't picking up the points we would like, but we have to remain positive and the Gaffer is certainly doing that.
"At the moment it is all about character on the field and finding a way of grinding out a win or two, which will give everyone a real boost."
