Gary Caldwell has spoken of his preparations as the Grecians welcome Lincoln City to St James Park looking to arrest their recent run of defeats.
Six league defeats in a row means City's form has slipped, but Gary says the group have the belief to turn things around, starting this weekend.
"We are fully behind the players and they are fully behind us as staff, and there is a strong togetherness," Gary said.
"Winning brings you together, but I think losing also brings you together in a different way, and I can feel there disappointment and their want and need to win.
"The group are hurting but they are ready to put things right.
"Lincoln are a very good team and their manager has left but they've continued their formation and style of play. There are no easy games at this level, and we know what we are going to be up against. We have to work with the players today and tomorrow to build that belief and give them that clarity on what they will need to do to win the game."
"It's important we keep creating opportunities."
