Richard Dunne has issued a rallying call to his Manchester City team-mates, of the belief the club are more than capable of qualifying for Europe.
Monday's abject display in falling to a 2-0 defeat at Eastlands to rivals Everton has casts doubts over whether City have the staying power to still be in the hunt come the season's close.
City currently find themselves in eighth place, six points shy of a UEFA Champions League berth but still very much in the running to land a Uefa Cup spot.
Dunne is desperate for European excursions next term and is confident City are still in contention as the season reaches its climax.
"We're still in with a shout," the Irishman said.
"There are a lot of big games to go for the four or five teams chasing a place in Europe.
"There are plenty of twists and turns to come."
