With four of Cardiff City's next six Premier League matches coming at home, Sol Bamba believes those fixtures will be crucial as they seek a first win of the season and to move out of the bottom three.
Neil Warnock's side host Burnley in Sunday's 16:00 BST kick-off and, with tricky trips to Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool on the horizon, Cardiff will also entertain Fulham, Leicester City and Brighton & Hove Albion before Matchweek 13.
"The good thing is they're at home, and we want to make our home a fortress," said Bamba in the video above. "With our fans behind us, those games are going to be massive.
"Without disrespect to Burnley or Fulham, I think we can beat those kinds of teams, and if we want to stay up we have to.
"Our home games against the teams around us are going to be massive."
