Torino coach Walter Novellino is convinced they're over the worst after an impressive 0-0 draw at Cagliari.

"It wasn't easy to get a result in Cagliari," Novellino told Sky Italia. "We saw a great Torino. Now we are a team, we concede little and fight back well.

"It's still going to be a difficult championship for us, but we have shown that we can do it. We perhaps need to be a bit more ruthless.

"We have had the chances to be so," Novellino enthused. "We hope to be a bit luckier next Saturday in the derby against Juventus. To win it would be a turning point in our season."
