Leonardo, the Inter Milan coach, has urged his side to maintain their improved form when they host Bologna in Serie A tonight.
They head into the game on the back of three consecutive wins, including Wednesday's 3-2 triumph over Genoa in the Coppa Italia.
Victories against Napoli and Catania have lifted Inter to seventh in the standings, 11 points behind league leaders AC Milan but with two games in hand.
"My balance is positive when you look at what we have done so far," said the Brazilian of his first week in charge.
"We have pulled ourselves out of a particular situation. There is feeling with the group.
"But there is still the whole of the second half of the season to play and we have to continue to improve."
