“I think we can do it,” declared England coach Trevor Bayliss as his side look to save the Ashes series at Old Trafford.
Australia are just eight wickets from retaining the Ashes as England fell to 18-2 late on Saturday.
Steve Smith made another impressive total of 82 in Manchester as the tourists reached 186 before declaring.
England require 365 runs for the improbable win, six more than the target set at the dramatic Headingley Test two weeks ago.
In all likelihood the hosts will need to bat for the whole of day five in order to earn an unlikely draw and take the series to the final Test at the Oval.
But Bayliss said: “It’s a big challenge but we’ve got two guys out there that are very good players. We’ve certainly got some players in the sheds that can make hundreds.
“It’ll take a couple of our guys to make good hundreds but certainly as we saw in the last Test, anything is possible.”
