Ferdinand acknowledges his side deserved to lose on those occasions but feels that if they cut out sloppy defensive mistakes they are capable of getting a long awaited win.
"A lot of the victories we have achieved were based around defending well as a team, playing collectively and not as individuals.
"You can't argue with the results. I am not making excuses. We lost the games. They were the better team on the day.
"But if we go back to what we are good at this weekend, I am confident we can get a positive result."
