It's been a week of frustrations for the Australian team, who lacking momentum, have been unable to produce their best golf.
"Golf's a lot more fun when you're winning and making a lot of birdies and we just haven't made them this week. It's pretty much simple as that," said Scott.
"We just haven't got any momentum going, we haven't had a hot nine holes to get us in the tournament and we might have left it too late. But an up day tomorrow can go a long way."
Leishman continues to be upbeat heading into the final round saying, "We may have left it too late, but we'll never give up. There's still a bit at stake.
"We'll play well and it's more fun making birdies, so even if we don't have a chance to win, we still want to make lots of birdies and have fun."
In the third round Leishman and Scott, playing alternate shots, combined to shoot 2-under 70 to be 4-under the card and T11.
"Nothing much special happened, which has been the theme all week, but fairly steady today. So 2-under is not a bad score but it wasn't anything great," said Scott.
"It was I guess better than we did Thursday. It was obviously a tough start but conditions are probably a little easier today and we made a few more birdies, which was nice. Hopefully we can have a real low one tomorrow," added Leishman.
As the Danes showed yesterday when they fired 12-under 60, the fourball format, allows the opportunity for a low score and that is what the Aussies are aiming for.
"We're just going to have to make every putt we look at. That's what it takes to shoot any low round. Hopefully we've saved them all until tomorrow," said Scott.
With Leishman further explaining, "We've hit a lot of good putts that have looked like going in and burning the edges. I guess you've got to try to take the positives out of that, that we're hitting good putts.
"Hopefully they'll drop tomorrow and we can try and beat Denmark's score of yesterday. I think we'll have to."
