Midfielder Scott Allan is confident Scotland Under-21s can turn draws into wins and secure their place at the UEFA European Championship.
Billy Stark's side sit second in Group 10, three points behind leaders Holland, and with two crucial qualifiers against Luxembourg and Austria remaining.
They are also one of the few nations in the competition who remain undefeated so far, although Allan felt the young Scots could have taken maximum points from their last two encounters against the Dutch at home in February and Bulgaria in May.
However, the West Brom player believes the confidence within the camp is high enough for a final push in the remaining double-header.
He said: "If we apply ourselves the right way there is no reason why we can't get the two wins from the two games.
"We went away to Bulgaria and I thought we deserved to win so it was just unfortunate that we gave away that goal. We could maybe have sneaked the win against Holland as well.
"We are positive that we can get the wins from the two games and hopefully that will be enough to take us to Israel."
Next up for Stark's youngsters is a friendly against Belgium at East End Park on Tuesday night.
Allan added: "It's a good test for us going into the double-headers as those are must-win games for us. If we put on a good performance, hopefully we can build on it for those two games.
"We have been unfortunate not to get a couple more points in the other games so these are games we have to win if we want to go to Israel next summer."
