Chris Tremlett believes England can build on the momentum gained from their win in Adelaide as they look to keep the one-day series against Australia alive in Brisbane.
"There are three games to play and a chance to win this series, so we will be coming hard"
Chris Tremlett Quotes of the week
The tourists left themselves an almighty mountain to climb in the seven-match series when they quickly fell 3-0 behind.
However England recorded an impressive 21-run victory on Wednesday, giving them renewed hope that they produce a great escape.
Now they need another positive result in the fifth one-dayer at the Gabba on Sunday - and Tremlett is confident they can repeat the trick.
"We had a couple of sloppy performances in the first two or three games, but we spoke about that after every game and I thought we bounced back really well at Adelaide," he said.
"There were some strong performances - Matt Prior at the top of the innings and Jonathan Trott with a great hundred. There was a great platform from our batting.
"We then produced a solid bowling performance and hopefully we can take that momentum into the rest of the series.
"There are three games to play and a chance to win this series, so we will be coming hard."
Despite impressing Down Under during the winter, Tremlett was left out of England's initial 15-man squad for the World Cup.
However the Surrey bowler could yet get a chance to feature in the tournament due to injuries, with Tim Bresnan the biggest concern for team director Andy Flower after he was sent home with a calf problem.
"Unfortunately for me I haven't been picked (in the World Cup squad) but there are still things I can work on, I still feel a part of this one-day team." Tremlett added.
"I have reason to work hard in this series.
"There may still be injury so I will be going home after the series and will still be working hard to keep in shape.
"If an injury comes along hopefully I am someone who can come into the squad."
