And Denton, man-of-the-match in Scotland’s opening game against England, was adamant if his team got into a similar position against the Azzurri they would ready to claim a first win in Rome since 2006.
“The area we need to work on is, when we are in that position, to play clever rugby and not get ahead of ourselves,” said the 22-year-old.
“We've been in every game and there's been a feeling we're capable of beating the other team.
“And in most of the cases we probably should have beaten the other team. It is just about getting the win.
“We're very proud guys and we want to do Scotland proud. I think the way we've been playing has done that.
“But we are going to be judged on results, so this is a great opportunity for us to turn that around.”
Head coach Andy Robinson concurred with his young charge and was encouraged with the improvements in Scotland’s play this campaign.
But the 47-year-old reiterated his frustration at his team’s position in the Championship and said victory over Italy was the only thing on his mind.
“We've got ourselves into winning positions and actually it's our errors that have put us where we are,” said the former England head coach.
“We have had strong starts, which is pleasing in terms of what we do in the warm-up and what we do going on to the pitch.
“We haven't been blown out the water by any team and there's been a lot of improvements we've made in the way we're trying to play the game.
“But we're here to win and that's the underlying thing that's hurting everyone.”
