Notts County manager Ricardo Moniz believes his side can still beat relegation despite losing 3-1 to Preston North End on Tuesday night.
The Magpies remain in 22nd place in Sky Bet League One, two points adrift of safety with two games left to play and are currently on an 11-match winless run.
County lost 3-1 at Meadow Lane as Jermaine Beckford scored a brace and a strike from Joe Garner kept the Preston’s promotion push on track.
A goal from striker Jimmy Spencer had given Notts hope at 2-1 but it was not enough to spark a comeback.
However Moniz still remains positive that the club can stay up even though County have only taken just two points in four games since the 50-year-old joined the club.
“We’re still not dead, still everything is possible,” the former Hamburg boss told BBC Radio Nottingham.
“The boys showed unbelievable character and we have to recover to take three points against Doncaster
“We have to raise ourselves and hopefully Jamal Campbell-Ryce makes a miracle comeback with Paddy McCourt because we need creativity up front.”
On-loan Sheffield United winger Campbell-Ryce has been out since the 1-1 draw with Yeovil Town with a knee injury.
The Magpies face Doncaster at home on Saturday and face a trip to Gillingham on the last day of the season.
