Pier Paolo Bisoli believes Bologna can turn a corner against Udinese, which they'll have to after one point from four games.
The Rossoblu started the campaign in disastrous fashion, earning only a draw against 10-man Juventus.
“The only way to bring home the three points is to repeat our performances against Juventus and Inter,” said the Coach.
“I saw the side was more relaxed and a victory would do us the world of good by boosting confidence.
“I am certain this squad can achieve great things. The important thing is to eliminate this black cloud of negativity that we inherited from the final weeks of last season.
“We've got to think positive. There are many games to go and I am more and more convinced that hard work pays off.
“The most important thing is the identity of the team. I want to see the lads play on a par with the big clubs, then the results will come.”
Both Francesco Antonioli and Nicola Ravaglia are unavailable, so Federico Agliardi is given the goalkeeping gloves.
