Keane Lewis-Potter says the team are searching to find their goalscoring touch as they prepare to face AFC Bournemouth.
The Tigers come into the game after three successive league defeats, but the forward says the group remain in good spirits as they look to register a positive result.
“When we create chances, we need to take them,” said Lewis-Potter.
“For a lot of us, it’s our first season in the Championship and we all knew it was going to be tough, but we went on a great run last season where we grew and grew as a group and I think the same will happen this season.
“The boys were excellent on opening day against Preston. That performance is the benchmark for us and we need to start games quicker as the past three results have been tough to take.”
The Tigers face Scott Parker’s Bournemouth this weekend, with the Cherries being knocked out of the Carabao Cup against Premier League side Norwich City in midweek last time out, and Lewis-Potter is looking forward to the test.
“They’re a good side who have come down from the Premier League, but I think it’s a challenge we’re all waiting for,” added Lewis-Potter.
“We can’t give them too much respect, but we’re raring to go and I can’t wait to play the game.
“Everyone knows how important it is to get the three points before the international break. It would be huge for us and hopefully it will help us go on a similar run like we had last season.”
