Scotland captain Darren Fletcher has shrugged off concerns over his niggling ankle injury.
Fletcher has declared himself fit to face Wales on Saturday despite struggling with the ankle problem.
The Manchester United ace has been playing through the pain barrier with the problem but he has rejected suggestions that he is being forced to take pain-killing injections to get through matches.
"My injury is fine," said Fletcher. "There has been a lot documented but I'm not having injections before every game.
"I had one injection, which was a cortisone injection, and I rested for a week and it feels quite good."
The 25-year-old has established himself as a key player for club and country and he admits he is currently enjoying the best form of his career.
"I'm enjoying my football and, yes, I would say my form is as good as it has ever been," added Fletcher
"That comes from a settled run in the team, playing in my preferred position of central midfield.
"I've matured as a player and I've got physically stronger to play in that central midfield position. All these factors combined, I feel as though I am in the best form."
