ford puma clutch problem

I'm having an intermittent problem with the hydraulic clutch on the puma. Occassionally the fluid (pedal) pressure disappears when I try to change gear! As I'm not losing clutch fluid can I assume that the rubber piston on
the master cylinder (behind the pedal) needs replacing?
