Jack Robinson knows that it is important to string together some positive results in the festive period, starting against QPR on Saturday.
The Reds welcome The Hoops to The City Ground and Robinson wants to start off a run of four games in 10 days with a victory against his former side.
He said: "Christmas is always a difficult period but if you can get a good few results together you can have a solid January and push on towards the back end of the season.
"It is hard and the games come thick and fast so it is about recovery and getting ready for the next one."
The Reds will be looking to make amends for their defeat on home soil last time out against Preston with Robinson confident of a victory.
He said: "We knew Preston was a massive game and we said before that it could be a banana skin for us, and unfortunately it was.
"All you can do is learn from your mistakes and that is what we have done. QPR have put some good results together lately so it is going to be a tough game on Saturday.
"If we just carry on playing our normal game and if we are on fire on the day then we will blow QPR out of the water as we have such a strong squad and a strong team that we can beat anyone in this league."
