Craig Mackail-Smith insists that he will be fit to lead the line for Scotland in their vital Euro 2012 clash in Spain.
The Brighton & Hove Albion marksman was the hero for Scotland at the weekend as he scored the only goal in their 1-0 win over Liechtenstein.
The win in Vaduz put Scotland's own Euro 2012 future in their own hands, meaning they need to match Czech Republic's result on Tuesday to seal the runner-up spot in Group I.
Whilst Craig Levein takes his side to Alicante, the Czechs travel to Lithuania - whose only win in the group so far came in Olomouc.
Levein is now sweating on the fitness of Mackail-Smith, who has back and hamstring issues - but he is confident he will line-up against Spain.
"I'm sure I'll be okay," he told the Daily Record.
"This is something that I've had to deal with for a while. I have a strength and conditioning programme which helps me recover whenever I feel it tight.
"But recently I've had so many games I've not been able to stick to it and the hamstring tightens a bit.
"There's nothing I can do but rest up and I'm pretty sure that with a day to recover I'll be fine."
Levein has refused to rule out Kenny Miller - who looks unlikely to feature, whilst he waits on Mackail-Smith and also Aston Villa's Barry Bannan - who had a problem with his heel.
But Bannan is also optimistic, saying: "When I woke up on Sunday the Achilles was stiff and I couldn't get my shoes on, that's why I've travelled in my trainers.
"I've had the gash glued and that tightens it up. But I'm not going to let something like this rule me out.
"This is a massive game and one we all want to be involved in. Hopefully, I'll get through it okay as it's more awkward than anything.
"I carried on on Saturday and my feeling is that I can do that again."
