Saints have won two, drawn two and lost three of their seven Paisley fixtures and have scored six times at Greenhill Road but conceded just as many goals.
Now with Dunfermline next up, the Buddies captain has no doubt his men must use the opportunity to bolster their home form.
But with Saints having claimed four points from their last possible six and kept two clean sheets in the process since the calamitous League Cup quarter-final exit to Ayr, Goody says the Paisley men will enter the fray on Saturday in buoyant mood.
He said: "The manager, Danny Lennon, has made home form an absolute priority this season and we have maybe not done as well as we had hoped.
"It was good to get the clean sheet in the last home game against Hearts, although we feel we had the chances to take all three points.
"But it was a solid result and now we need to build on that against Dunfermline. They are coming off a 1-0 win at Hibernian so will be in confident mood and, hopefully, that will make for an open game.
"That said, with it being our home game, the onus is on us to win.
"We completed the pre-international break really strongly with the win at St Johnstone and then the point against Hearts. Now we need to kick on against Dunfermline."
Goodwin also hailed Saints No.1 Craig Samson's inclusion in the Scotland squad for last weekend's friendly victory in Cyprus.
He said: "Craig has been great for us this season. He finished the last segment of the campaign with two clean sheets and he can take a lot of confidence from that.
"It is great that he has had some recognition from the international set-up and I think that reflects the consistency he has shown week-in, week-out."
