Bath back-row Ben Skirving insists that Saturday's loss to Northampton has been turned into a positive ahead of travelling to take on London Irish.
The West Country outfit's winning start to the Aviva Premiership came to an end last weekend when Saints prevailed 18-14 at the Recreation Ground.
Despite that defeat, Skirving is adamant Gary Gold's men can recover and claim their first piece of silverware since the Challenge Cup in 2008.
"We've been working on a couple of things after the weekend, we put in another positive performance which is the main thing," he said.
"Things just didn't go our way in the end but in terms of the performance there were things we can definitely take forward.
"We were very physical which was one of our aims, and we were also strong in the set piece areas which was pleasing.
"We'll move on to the next task now and try and regain the momentum - that's very important for us.
"It's not all about the results, sometimes they don't go your way, it's about how you apply yourself afterwards that's key."
