Allan McGregor says Scotland cannot give up hope of qualifying for the 2014 World Cup and is targeting a win against Belgium on Tuesday.
Scotland have failed to win in their opening three qualifiers and, following home draws with Serbia and Macedonia, lost 2-1 away to Wales on Friday.
The defeat heaped the pressure on under-fire coach Craig Levein and left Scotland with a mountain to climb in the race to reach the finals in Brazil.
Group A leaders Belgium will provide Scotland with their biggest test yet, but goalkeeper McGregor is trying to remain positive about his team's chances.
He told the Scottish Football Association website: "It is always important to bounce back when you don't get a good result and it is especially so now.
"Obviously qualifying has become more difficult now but we can't give up, and we need to look forward to the Belgium game with belief that we can take something from them."
McGregor added: "It's hard to pinpoint what is going wrong. As the manager said, there is just one ingredient away from things going well but luck is definitely not something we have had a lot of.
"The group was always going to be a difficult one and it has become even more difficult now, but we have to take the positives, block out the negatives and do our best to get a result in Belgium."
