Motherwell manager Stuart McCall has backed his side to bounce back from consecutive Clydesdale Bank Premier League defeats when they face Hibernian at Easter Road on Sunday.
The Fir Park outfit have seen their lead in third place in the SPL cut to five points after losses against Kilmarnock and Rangers. McCall is confident, however, that his team possess more than enough character to rediscover their form.
"It doesn't matter how many points there are between ourselves and United or St Johnstone after the weekend. What matters is the gap at the end of the season," McCall said.
"We lost three games in a row over the Christmas and New Year period and dropped below Hearts and St Johnstone. At that stage the team showed great character to bounce back.
"It's going to be an exciting end to the season and I am confident in the ability of my players to bounce back from two defeats in a row and finish the season on a high.
"The bottom line is you want to get all three points or at least a point and I think our play merited that last week. Overall we take a lot of positives from a good performance against what was a strong Rangers side."
Despite their 3-2 success over Inverness last weekend, Hibs remain just six points clear of Dunfermline at the foot of the SPL table.
Motherwell have recorded two victories over the Easter Road side already this season and McCall is confident of adding to that tally.
"We put in one of our best performances of the season at Easter Road and we have shared some cracking matches at Fir Park too," he added.
"I am really happy to be where we are. I looked at the fixtures at the start of the season and thought the Hibs game might be the one that decided whether we would make the top six."
