Cameron Jerome says Norwich City's squad are in a good place as they prepare to visit Middlesbrough in the Sky Bet Championship on Tuesday night.
The Canaries go into the game off the back of a run of four leagues matches without conceding, and had the lion's share of the opportunities during Saturday's 0-0 draw with Bristol City.
"We felt we had the better chances," Jerome told the media at Colney Training Centre on Monday afternoon.
"On another day, we'd have taken two or three of those chances. It wasn't to be and sometimes it goes that way.
"We'll move on and go into Tuesday full of confidence. Middlesbrough is going to be a tough place to go.
"There's expectancy on them to get promoted and I'd fancy them to be up there."
Jerome says recent results, combined with performances, demonstrate the extend to which City are growing together as a squad.
"Everything is new," the frontman added, as he stressed the need for a patient outlook to continue.
"The philosophy is new. The players are new. You need time to adjust but we seem to have turned a corner.
"The manager has identified our weaknesses brilliantly. We've only conceded one goal since the international break.
"There's so much more to come from us. Once the team really clicks we'll be hard to stop."
