Harry Bunn heads back to Preston North End chasing three points for Huddersfield Town - and three goals in as many games.
But Town lost both Championship games, and Bunn wants to get back to winning ways.
The former Manchester City player had a spell on loan at Preston four years ago.
But there will be no sentiment when he returns to Deepdale aiming for a 28th outing of the campaign.
“Results have gone against us and we have to start picking up points,” he said.
“Everyone needs to pull together and the fans have a big part to play as well.
“I think our fans travel well with us and it’s a credit to them. They follow us around the country and they’re brilliant both home and away.
“We look forward to every game knowing that they’re going to be there behind us and cheering for the side.
“I’m sure they’ll be at Preston in numbers, helping us get a result on the road.”
Oldham-born Bunn only figured once at Preston, but scored in the 3-2 home League I win over Wycombe Wanderers.
He added: “There’s no emotional homecoming for me, of course, but I’m looking forward to going back and trying to score and get the win which will be the main aim.
“I wasn’t there that long - and under a different manager - but it would still be nice to score against them.”
Bunn netted in stoppage time for Town against Cardiff.
“It’s always nice to score but, given the circumstances, I was disappointed with the result,” he said.
“Hopefully we’ll be able to put things right against a tough Preston side.
“The conditions made it hard for both teams to play but the second half we started to open them up and we again conceded from mistakes, which have let us down recently.
“We’ve been on the training ground looking at the mistakes and trying to stop them and once we have wiped them out then we can go back to picking points up.
“We go in the day after a game and watch the clips with the video analysis team.
“The head coach is very good at pointing out what went wrong and how we need to improve ahead of the next game.”
