Pompey saw their three-match winning run come to an end with a midweek defeat at Barnsley.
But rather than wallow in that disappointment, Colby Bishop is more concerned with starting another sequence of positive results.
They could arguably not ask for a tougher test than facing League One leaders Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.
And while showing them the respect they deserve, Bishop is confident Pompey can cause problems of their own.
The striker said: “We’ve had a very good start since the new manager’s come in and so we want to look forward.
“It wasn’t good enough on the day from us at Barnsley, but all we can do is try to bounce back on Saturday.
"We had won three games prior to Tuesday night and so now the focus is on trying to start another run."
“Sheffield Wednesday are top for a reason and you don’t get to where they are at this point without being one of the best teams in the league.
“But we also know what a good team we are and just how much of a threat we can be to other sides who come to Fratton Park.
“We had won three games prior to Tuesday night and so now the focus is on trying to start another run.
“I don’t think we need to look too far ahead at the moment, though, so let’s concentrate on the next one and then see what happens.”
Bishop struck for the 19th time this season in the loss at Oakwell and certainly does not want to stop there.
He said: “I’m definitely looking beyond that figure, but I don’t really think about scoring – I think about winning. If goals come along with that, then brilliant.”
