Boost: Miller is hopeful he'll be fit

Kenny Miller is hopeful he will be given the all-clear for Scotland's crucial Euro 2012 qualifiers against Liechtenstein and Spain.

The Cardiff striker was rated doubtful for the double-header after suffering a groin injury at the weekend.

He will have a scan later today but believes the problem is not too serious. Miller told the Daily Record: 'I'm feeling pretty positive and I am not in a lot of pain. 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 does not 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.'

Scotland go to Liechtenstein on Saturday, before facing Spain three days later.
