Kenny Miller will have a scan on a groin injury today to see if he will be available for this weekend's vital Euro2012 qualifier for Scotland.
The Cardiff City striker sustained the problem against Hull City on the weekend and even though Bluebirds boss Malky Mackay indicated Miller would not make the match against Liechtenstein in Vaduz on Saturday, the player himself is confident.
"I'm still hopeful I'm going to be okay," he told SunSport.
"I've had very good treatment and feel it's improved already.
"On Monday I'll have a scan which will show the extent of the damage and it might not be good news.
"But as things stand I'm optimistic and fairly positive about my chances - and so is (Scotland physio) Michael (McBride).
"Sometimes these things aren't as bad as it seems initially."
The Liechtenstein clash is vital for Scotland as they sit third on the Group I table, two points behind second-placed Czech Republic, who meet group leaders Spain on Friday.
