Paul Lambert has assured supporters that his players will come out fighting for the Arsenal game on Saturday.
Lambert has promised he will lift the players after the frustration at losing 5-0 to Man City, a defeat set in motion by a decision to award a penalty against Andreas Weimann with the game finely-balanced.
Despite being mightily irked on the final whistle, Lambert issued a rallying call ahead of the Gunners test at the weekend.
Lambert insisted he's happy with the way the team are playing and confident they will come roaring back in the Barclays Premier League table in the weeks ahead.
He said: "You have to bounce back. Too many people come to watch you. We will come back next week stronger.
"They'll be fine, they always have been. I'll just lift them again and they will bounce back.
"The bottom three is not where you want to be, nobody wants to be there, but you have to bounce back and keep going.
"There's a long way to go. These lads are giving us everything they've got.
"Manchester United, Man City and Arsenal are three massive games on the bounce. But we're certainly not playing badly, that's for sure.
"You can't legislate for decisions. That's human error, that's a decision that should never have gone against us.
"It will be jam packed now against Arsenal at our stadium. The performances haven't been too bad but against Man United, Man City and Arsenal you're going to have to play at your top ability against them.
"There's an awful long way to go. But we'll certainly keep going."
