AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe believes his squad has what it takes to improve and turn around the current poor form.
The Cherries have recently lost four games on the trot, slipping the side down from top of League One, down to seventh and out of the play-off positions.
The poor run of form has coincided with the loss of injured duo Charlie Daniels and Tommy Elphick.
In regards to Daniels, Howe has played both loanees Dan Seaborne and Marcos Painter in the role but has recently opted to field right winger Matt Ritchie to fill the gap.
Whilst stand-in captain Tommy Elphick has been replaced by Seaborne, shifting over from left back to partner Steve Cook who has inherited the captains armband following the injuries to both Elphick and Miles Addison.
The loan window could offer the chance to bring in some defensive cover for Howe, but Howe has so-far resisted opting instead to stick with the side he has.
Meanwhile the Cherries have also lost the ability to recall Stephane Zubar from his loan spell at Bury, due to the defender also picking up an injury that rules him out for the remainder of the season.
Howe told the Daily Echo...
"We have got a few weeks until the loan deadline but I wouldn`t jump to that conclusion at the moment. I think we desperately need to do some work on the training pitch and get back to basics...'
'...I don`t doubt the individuals in the team. I don`t doubt the players and never have so it is certainly not a case of let`s ship out players and get new ones in. We will work with the players we have got because we believe in them. We need to play better."
"There is absolutely no blame in terms of individuals but people have to take responsibility and do better. It is always a collective effort whether you win, lose or draw...'
