Bendigo Braves is preparing for a home court showdown on Thursday night when it hosts the Frankston Blues.
Braves men will head into the match with a 1-3 record, but captain Ray Turner said his team had learned from its mistakes from previous games.
"We've been making little mistakes on defence and giving teams too many second chance points...we need to be more aggressive on the ball and not make it so easy for opponents," Turner said.
"It's now a matter of going out there and being effective against Frankston."
With several new additions to the squad this year, Turner had no concerns in regards to the team "gelling together".
"As far as chemistry goes - all the pieces are there," he said.
"It's a matter of making minor adjustments on errors from the games we have lost - making the errors go away and we can move on from there."

Braves women head into the clash with an unscathed 4-0 record, but that means nothing to the team.
"We don't focus on our record - we focus on what we need to do to make sure we are in the big dance at the end of the season," Braves player Bianca Dufelmeier said.
"When we go into the game against Frankston, we are 0-0 and it's anyone's game."
Dufelmeier's personal focus will be bringing energy off the bench.
"When you make substitutes, teams can fall off," she said.
"I'm known as the spark.
"My role is to make sure we don't fall off and to bring plenty of energy onto the court.
"I'm someone you hate to play against but love to have on your team - I'm annoying and always in your face," she laughed.
Braves women will still be without import Becca Tobin who is currently playing in European leagues, but star player Tessa Lavey will return after a week away at a national squad camp.
Dufelmeier said Frankston was a "dangerous" team with nothing to lose and would be firing on all cylinders following its one point victory over the Geelong Supercats last weekend.
Spectators at the game will have the chance to support an initiative between Bendigo Toyota and Bendigo Foodshare to help feed the one in 11 people in the region that experience food poverty every week.
"It would be really great if people could bring non-perishable items along to the game and put them in the trunk of the car outside to help support families," Dufelmeier said.
Braves women will take to the court at the Bendigo Stadium on Thursday night at 6pm, followed by the men at 8pm.
