Allansford is refusing to draw a line through this season.
The Cats have conceded they can not make finals. But believe there is still plenty to gain.
Vice-captain Trav Membrey said the focus was on the future.
"We’re building for next year now. As in working on our game plan that will see us move forward,”he said.
"We might not get it right now, but we need to start working on it and getting a little bit of confidence in it."
Membrey, the club’s reigning best and fairest, said the game plan was one he felt would pay off.
"It’s a very daring type of game," he said.
"We need to take the game on with our foot skills and be bold enough to take chances.
"We do it at training and know what to do. But when it comes to game time we go back to the safe way of kicking down the line.
"We can't do that because every team sets up for it. We need to be bold and break the lines."
The Cats have a perfect opportunity to implement their new game plan when they take on Panmure on Saturday.
