CHRIS Taylor has revealed he has been carrying an injury in recent weeks after being forced off against Watford in midweek.
Taylor, who lasted just 36 minutes before being substituted, is due to undergo a scan on Thursday on what he believes is an underlying groin problem that has become aggravated.
"I am hoping it is not too serious," he told NewsAtDen. "I have been playing with it for a few weeks now – me and the physio have been aware of it.
"I might have pushed it too far and strained it. It's a bit sore at the moment."
Taylor was thrilled to see the Lions finish the job against the Hornets without him – and particularly pleased for goalscorer Shaun Batt, who is set to be offered a new contract.
"It is great for Shaun to have got the goal," Taylor said. "He works the hardest out of anyone and if anyone deserved a goal, I think he did.
"He gives his all every game and is a very likeable lad. For himself and the club it was an absolutely massive goal and I couldn't be more pleased. Everyone is delighted for him."
