Reading manager Brendan Rodgers will try not to get too despondent about the 1-0 defeat by Cardiff which leaves the Royals without a home league win since January.
Cardiff's victory moved the Welsh side up to fourth in the table and left Reading in 18th but Rodgers, whose men were last victorious at the Madejski Stadium when they beat Wolves 1-0 on January 21, is staying upbeat.
"We always dwell on the positives at this club," said Rodgers. "The players don't dwell on that long run without a home win because it can change in a moment."
He added: "A bit of luck can lead to one win and then you can go straight off on a winning run.
"The crowd can see what we are doing and we are not far away. I am trying to give a new identity to the group and asking them to show courage and pass the ball.
"We played some wonderful football but we need to be killers in the penalty area. We can dominate possession and we are only a matter of inches away from being very, very good."
