Kenny Miller is confident he can win his fitness race and put himself in contention for a crucial Euro 2012 double-header with Scotland.
Craig Levein's men are set to bring the curtain down on their qualification campaign with must-win fixtures against Lichtenstein and reigning European and world champions Spain.
It appeared as though the Scots would be forced to tackle those encounters without the services of their most potent attacking weapon when Miller hobbled out of Cardiff's 2-1 defeat to Hull City on Saturday with a groin injury.
The 31-year-old is refusing to rule himself out, though, and believes there is a good chance he will be ready for international duty.
"I'm feeling pretty positive and I am not in a lot of pain," Miller said in the Daily Record.
"I don't think it is a serious injury.
"I'm confident I will be able to join up with the rest of the squad but I am going for a scan on Monday to get the injury properly assessed.
"I am hoping the scan will show that there is no tear.
"It certainly doesn't feel as if there is a tear and I would like to think I will be given the all-clear.
"These games mean the world to Scotland and I am desperate to be involved.
"So long as nothing bad shows up in the scan then I should be able to join up and travel with the rest of the lads."
