Reds defensive anchor Anthony Faingaa says the current Super Rugby champions have momentum even though they lost to the Crusaders in Christchurch.
The Reds have been steadily improving in recent weeks as they get some of their stars back but they have yet to win a four try bonus point.
The Reds have played 10 Super Rugby matches so far but have only scored 18 tries so far and the most in one match is three tries.
The Reds trail the Australian conference leaders the Brumbies by nine points and they need to win five of their last six matches to guarantee a play-off berth.
The Queenslanders play the Chiefs this weekend and a victory in Brisbane is crucial as the Brumbies have a bye and will automatically pick up four points for the bye.
Wallabies centre Faingaa says the Reds are now aiming to break the try-scoring drought.
"We have to keep believing and get bonus points and win games," Faingaa told AAP.
"I think it's something we need to look into but we have to get the win first. "We have to get bonus points ... and we have to do what we can to get bonus points."
Reds coach Ewen McKenzie says that winning the match will stil be their priority but adds that he is confident that they are starting to click now that injured players are returning.
"(Four tries) happen if you play well enough across the game," he said.
"I think if you go out there and try to construct that from minute one, you'll be behind. "You've got to get in front on the scoreboard and stay in front."
Faingaa was highly influential last weekend against the Crusaders when he made his first start in 10 weeks and he says they are gaining momentum.
"I feel like that momentum is starting to shift and I think it's coming our way," he said. "I thought some of the stuff we did ... was encouraging but obviously we have a few areas to improve on. "I'm gutted by the loss, we should have come away from Christchurch with a win."
The Chiefs who have now gone nine matches unbeaten and Sonny Bill Williams and All Black Richard Kahui in the centres have formed a good partnership but coach McKenzie says that flyhalf Aaron Cruden has a lot to do with the Chiefs success.
"They're playing well as a team," the coach said. "They've got a good culture going.
"They're the benchmark side. It's a good challenge for us at Suncorp."
