Skipper Charlie Mulgrew has urged Rovers to improve at the back and in attack, starting with the visit of Middlesbrough on Sunday lunchtime.
Rovers are aiming to get back on track against Boro, and a win would be a timely boost ahead of the season run in.
Boro occupy the final play-off place in the Championship table, but a win for the hosts will move them to within five points off the Teessiders.
And captain Mulgrew is hoping Rovers can turn frustration to jubilation this weekend.
“We have been disappointed with the recent results, but the performance at Reading was good," the Scotland international reflected to iFollow Rovers.
“We passed the ball well and pressed them well. The game plan was perfect. To simplify the result, they were more clinical than us and were better in both boxes.
“That was it. That was the difference. It’s not unlucky, we need to improve. It’s something we need to put right.
“It’s so frustrating and disappointing, but we need to continue to take the positives, deal with the negatives and go on a run over the next few games.
“It’s not as easy as saying ‘let’s do it’, we need to put in the work to be more clinical with our chances and be better defensively."
