Coventry City left-back Blair Adams has urged the fans to keep up their 'terrific support' after the 3-2 loss to Leyton Orient.
The Sky Blues failed to progress in the Capital One Cup despite a spirited second-half performance from ten men City.
Carl Baker and Franck Moussa both netted for Steven Pressley's side but Kevin Lisbie's late header sent Orient through to the next round of the competition.
Despite the loss, the travelling support applauded their team at the final whistle for their efforts, and Adams believes the City support is going to be vital this season.
The 21-year old said: "The fans were superb. They really got behind the side throughout the game and even with a 3-2 defeat, they were still singing until the final whistle. It was terrific.
"I think they were proud of their team. We played really well and they realised that. They did the same on Saturday and they are going to be crucial this season.
"Hopefully, they will keep coming to the games and backing us all the way. I am sure we will keep the good performances coming and the results will follow."
City have lost their opening two games of the 2013/14 League One season and face Bristol City in their first home game on Sunday.
Adams believes there has been plenty of positives to take forward into Sunday's game and that the results will come.
He added: "We dominated for long periods against Orient, even when we went down to ten men. We have played two really good sides, and even though we haven't picked up a win yet, there are plenty of positives.
"I think we are in really good shape which was proven when we went down to ten men and you couldn't tell the difference between the two sides.
"Bristol have just come down from the Championship so it will be a difficult game for us but I think we can win.
"It is a tough start but the squad are learning all the time and with the fans backing us, I think we will do well this season."
