Roma will look to kick on and get closer to the European places, when they face Torino in Monday night's Italian Serie A game.
Roma are currently languishing in eighth place on 17 points, six points off fifth-placed Lazio, while Torino are in 13th with 14 points. That means a win for Torino can take the newly-promoted side up with Roma in the standings.
Roma coach Zdenek Zeman remained confident of his side's abilities, after their crushing 3-2 Derby loss to rivals Lazio last weekend.
The European hopefuls have one of the best records going forward, but they also have one of the worst defensive records this season, which has led to their rather disappointing eighth place. "I'm not obsessed with results," Zeman told reporters. "Obviously as a coach you want to play a certain type of football which is backed up by results -- and we've not had that yet.
"We must all set targets. After our training camp I was convinced this side would be competitive. Sadly we've not shown with results, but in our performances we have. There have been some matches in which we've played very well. I keep saying that we need to play to win every game and fear no one."
Zeman insisted he had the complete faith of his players as well as the club's board, despite some reports suggesting player unrest. "We're all on the same page -- the club has always treated me in the same way," he added. "We've consistently spoken about our targets and the work we're doing in the same fashion.
"We know what we're doing. Fractured dressing room? The media always report these things but I've never had a player come moaning to me.
"The squad is not happy because we're not getting results but the lads -- and you can see this from what they've said in the papers -- are convinced we can succeed."
Zeman is not taking Torino for granted and expects a tough fight Monday. "(Giampiero) Ventura's side are excellent on the road," he said. "They're very organised at the back away from home.
"It's up to us to disrupt them. Until last year I played in Serie B against Torino. It's the same side and you need a lot of hard work and patience to get the right result. What sort of performance do I want tomorrow? Eleven players who play football and who work for 90 minutes."
Roma have problems with suspension, with Danielle De Rossi beginning the first of his three-match suspension, while Nicolas Burdisso and Panagiotis Tachtsidis are also missing.
