Vidmar produced a tirade on Tuesday after the Reds poor performance against Gold Coast United on Friday night and Pantelis hopes it will the catalyst for improved showings in the future.
"It was a positive rocket - we fully deserved it, there's no question about that," said Pantelis.
"It was right on the money. We took it on-board and had a really good session. We will move forward from here on in.
"It is a crunch game for North Queensland and us. They haven't won a game and we are 1-2. You could be looking at being 12 points behind the leader already."
