The striker has been out of action for the past month after picking up a knee injury in the champions' 1-0 victory at Elgin City.

And with 25 goals to his name already this season, the Northern Irishman is desperate to add to that tally at Ibrox on Saturday.

"Hopefully I have a chance of playing against Peterhead. I don't want to curse myself and we're taking things day by day," he told the club's official website.

"I'm not happy to sit where I am and I want to finish the campaign well. I want to try to get a few more goals if I can.

"To be honest, I don't think we really realised how serious it was when I first hurt it against Annan.

"I personally didn't think it was as bad as it was and if I'd allowed it to settle down then I might have been back much quicker.

"I tried to play against Elgin because it was a big game for us but I probably shouldn't have and maybe didn't do myself any favours there."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
