Stephen Pearson reckons Mark McGhee’s methods will soon start translating into points as the Steelmen look to put a run of results together.
The Fir Parkers have been up and down since the new manager’s appointment, taking points of Aberdeen, Hearts and Kilmarnock but losing to Celtic, Inverness and Ross County.
‘Well currently occupy the eleventh spot, where they finished last year, but hope comes from the fact teams above are within touching distance.
And the 33-year old former Scotland International is sure the hard work of the ‘Well boss will eventually pay dividends.
He said: “The confidence is building. There has been a lot of changes in terms of training and other different things the manager is trying to implement.
“It will take time for the manager to get his ideas across but the players are listening to what he is saying and working hard to try and do these things.
“The fans want us to win games instantly, they don’t want to wait, especially after last season and the way it went.

“They don’t want to find ourselves in that position again and the fans are probably anxious.
“The players also know where we are in the table but we try not to think about it too much. We just look ahead to the game coming up at the weekend and take it one match at a time.
“It’s up to us to make sure we don’t end up in that position again.”
McGhee has gone on record by saying it’s unlikely the club will be able to add a raft of players in January, unless he can wheel and deal.
However, that’s not something that is of concern to Pearson, who is adamant there is enough in the squad to ensure ‘Well pull themselves up the table.
“I believe we’ve got enough in this squad to get out of trouble,” he said.
“We’ve got enough players who are capable. We’ve got match-winners, we’ve got goal scorers and defensively we’ve been okay throughout the season.”
