Monty Panesar insists England can preserve their proud unbeaten home record in the Test series against India from Thursday.
Michael Vaughan's side must win the third Test at the Oval to save their six-year streak in home Test series.
India went 1-0 up with a seven-wicket victory at Trent Bridge against England's inexperienced attack.
Hampshire's Chris Tremlett showed his quality in the international arena though with three quickfire wickets in the second innings, and Panesar is keen to take the positives out of that performance.
"We got three wickets in the second innings as they chased a small target in the last Test and we will be trying to put emphasis on that," Panesar said.
"We wanted to get a positive result out of that situation and we got a few of their wickets."
England came from 1-0 down to draw their away series in India in March 2006 and Panesar remains philosophical as a reult.
"In the Lord's Test we needed one wicket to win and there was some positive cricket played. Maybe the man upstairs didn't want us to win and the clouds came," he continued.
"These things happen in cricket and then in the second Test India played very well. It will be tough this week but if we play the cricket we have been we have a chance to do well."
The Northamptonshire spinner also feels the sledging antics, which drew criticism in the last Test, were overplayed.
"You want to be competitive but you need to play the game in the right spirit, which is important," he added.
"We haven't had any instructions about how to conduct ourselves. We all knew the game was played in the right spirit and as long as we keep doing that I am sure everything will be fine."
