Bruno believes Brighton & Hove Albion have plenty of reasons to be optimistic going into the rest of January and took heart from a positive display against Wolves on New Year’s Day.
The Spaniard says the return of key players to the squad will boost morale and is confident that the fine margins will soon turn in Albion’s favour.
He said, “We are in a bad run so our confidence should be low, but that is not the case due to our performance in the Wolves game.
“It’s hard, especially when you come from having a good period to be in this run of form. But now we can be happy because a few players are going to come back from injury and they will help us a lot.
“We have to keep trying, keep playing well and the goals will come.”

The 35-year-old admitted his disappointment following the defeat to Wolves, but insists the whole squad are determined to return to winning ways.
“We were so frustrated, as we were attacking for 90 minutes. They didn’t have many chances and scored from an own goal.
“Our performance was really good, we just need to improve a little bit in the last third.
“Now it is time to be together and think about what we can change and prepare for the next game.”
The defender insists that only a cutting edge is missing from Albion’s performances and he came within inches of scoring a stunning equaliser himself, only to be denied by the woodwork.
“I couldn’t see it but I put 100 per cent of my energy into it and it hit the crossbar. It would have been nice to get a goal and earn at least a draw.
“Football is about goals. If you are playing well, attacking and creating chances then you have more chances to score, but it’s just about being clinical.”
