Cardiff City captain Sean Morrison says Neil Warnock's record in the Championship has boosted belief.
Warnock has been promoted seven times and says he is chasing number eight despite the Bluebirds being second from bottom in the Championship.
"You always want to work under managers that have won promotions," defender Morrison told BBC Radio Wales.
"To get promoted so many times he's doing his job very well and he's doing the right things."
Warnock was appointed as Paul Trollope's successor after helping Rotherham to avoid the drop last season.
Former Reading defender Morrison says that he's already had an impact ahead of Cardiff's first game of Warnock's reign, at home against Bristol City on Friday.
"We just need to take his lead. The longer we spend with him with the squad, I'm sure it will rub off on us," Morrison added.
"He had a meeting with us and instantly after the meeting the place felt lifted," he said.
"After recent results confidence has been low. And we needed that lift to get us going again.
"There's a lot of passion in the building. Everyone knows what kind of team the manager puts out.
"He wants the players to be passionate and to want to win more than the other team."
Morrison has experienced Championship promotion in the past, with Reading in 2011-12.
The 25-year old is hoping to take inspiration from what the Royals achieved that season.
"The year I joined Reading they were in a similar position," he said.
"They were very close to the bottom of the league, but ended up winning the Championship.
"They went on an unbeaten run to win the league."
