Motherwell goalkeeper Darren Randolph is refusing to write off their Champions League campaign after their 2-0 defeat against Panathinaikos.
The Scottish Premier League side faced the Greek opposition in the first leg of their qualifying tie at Fir Park on Tuesday night.
Despite having large periods of possession, they lost the game and now face a difficult task of overturning the scoreline.
Randolph, however, recalls an SPL game against Hearts last year when they came back from three goals down at Tynecastle.
In the year prior to that, they somehow managed to draw 6-6 with Hibernian despite being four goals behind midway through the second half.
It is these kinds of comebacks that have given the Motherwell keeper hope that they can produce another inspirational performance to remain in Europe's premier competition.
He said: "There have been a few games where we have come from two or three down, for example in the Hearts game where we were 3-0 down at half-time and drew the game 3-3.
"We have it in us to come back. The way we performed and the chances we created gives us great hope for going there next week and getting the result we need."
