Karl Darlow wants to see Newcastle United be more aggressive in all aspects of their game, starting with the trip to Villa Park on Saturday.
The goalkeeper is one of the few players to still have credit in the bank after a winless run of nine games, but despite the plaudits he says it's all about teamwork and finding that win 'together'.
"Of course, we're in it together," Darlow told NUFC TV. "We know that. We have to make sure we pull ourselves out of this together.
"We know that recent performances in recent weeks haven't been good enough, that's been said.
"We know going forward we need to show a lot more of a positive attitude on the pitch in terms of playing and mentally we have to be more aggressive in the way we play and the way we come up against teams.
"This week in training we're building up to Villa and looking to be a lot more aggressive in our style of play, and in a way our attitude.
"We need to change what has happened the past few weeks, and the only way of doing that is by mentally switching on, attitude-wise, getting right at it and digging ourselves out of this situation."
Newcastle haven't won a game since December 12 when they scraped a 2-1 victory over West Brom, since then there have been two cup exits and only two points collected in the league. Burnley's win over Liverpool puts the Clarets level on points with United.

Darlow knows how important victory against Villa will be.
"A win is vital for us, we just need to lift the place - lift everyone around Newcastle and the only way we are going to do that is by winning football matches, and Premier League games," he added.
"That is sole the purpose of playing week-in, week-out and the enjoyment is when you are winning, so for me, I got a little bit of credit but as a team we have to look to win games and hopefully we can put that right on Saturday.
"I think you see all through the Premier League teams are going through difficult periods and it seems to be that one result that ignites them and they go onto improve.
"Not only performances but results - we have to everything in our power to go and make it happen which I'm sure whichever way it happens, one positive result can really swing things."
