Lee Camp is confident he will be fit for the resumption of domestic action this weekend after returning early from international duty.
The Nottingham Forest goalkeeper picked up a groin injury while turning out for Northern Ireland on Friday.
After picking up a knock against Estonia, the decision was taken not to risk him in Northern Ireland's final Euro 2012 qualifier against Italy on Tuesday.
Instead, Camp has returned to the City Ground to work on his fitness.
He believes he can shake off the knock by Saturday, meaning he will be in contention for Forest's trip to Coventry.
"It's just a little strain really and I'm okay," Camp told Forest Player.
"The scan came back clear yesterday (Monday) and I saw a chiropractor last night and all's well.
"I think I could have played for Ireland with it because it didn't feel too bad, I was just erring on the side of caution.
"As the medical staff keep telling me, groins are a little bit tricky and a little bit harder to manage.
"The sensible thing was not to travel to Italy. I think it's more sensible to be fit for Forest on Saturday than play tonight in Italy."
