The former Manchester United and QPR man has been in fine form for Town after re-inventing himself as an attacking midfielder under Steve Cotterill.

Goss, who has scored three times since returning to the first-team fold, suffered a grade two hamstring injury in training last Friday, which resulted in him missing games against Doncaster and Wigan.

Such a problem would generally rule a player out for two or three weeks, with only three weeks of the campaign remaining. But Goss, who is out of contract, has told Town staff he is recovering well.

Not for the first time this season Town have endured a spate of muscle problems.

Long-term absentees Aaron Pierre and Josh Daniels have stepped up their rehab and are in line to play some part in the final five games of the season, as is goalkeeper Matija Sarkic.

But Goss and striker Rekeil Pyke face a tougher battle to recover in time to feature again this term.
