Motherwell midfielder Keith Lasley is confident his team can strike the right balance as they look to get back to winning ways against Hibernian on Friday night.
Stuart McCall's men have lost three games in a row after losing a two-goal lead to draw at Aberdeen when they were seconds away from opening up a four-point lead at the top of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League.
But Motherwell had led the table despite seeing their squad depleted in the summer with the likes of Stephen Craigan and Tim Clancy leaving, the latter to Hibs.
The influential Steve Jennings also departed, breaking up a consistent midfield partnership with Lasley.
The captain has lined up in central midfield alongside a number of players this term including Nicky Law, Steven Hetherington, Stuart Carswell, Tom Hateley and Simon Ramsden.
And he believes Motherwell can emerge from the change with another good season.
Lasley said: "There's no doubt it was key to our success last year that we had a pretty settled team, we were lucky with injury, and in key areas of the team we did have good partnerships.
"Steve Jennings would be a loss to any team in the SPL, but that's football. You have just got to get on with it.
"This year we have maybe chopped and changed a little bit sometimes due to injury and suspension, but the young guys that have come in have certainly not let anyone down. I have been playing with Nicky Law in there, who is a fantastic footballer.
"It's been a little bit different but that happens in football - players move on, others come in. I'm certainly still confident we have players here who can have another good season."
