Scowen could be back to face Pools
JOSH Scowen has an outside chance of being fit enough to face Hartlepool tomorrow after injury ruined Saturday for him.
The midfielder rolled his ankle and had to be taken off early on in the game against Southend and missed the trip to Exeter as a precaution.
Blues boss Gareth Ainsworth said: "Knowing Josh Scowen, he recovers quite quickly from injuries. We'll have a look and see where he is on Saturday - there's a chance he might be available.
"He's a tenacious character who wants to get back as soon as he can. He's not a very good patient for Theo Farley, he's very frustrated and wants to get out on the pitch."
Paris Cowan-Hall is the only other injury concern and Ainsworth said being fit for next weekend's trip to his old club Plymouth is a more realistic prospect for the winger.
He said: "Paris is close. He's got his eyes on the Plymouth game for obvious reasons. Maybe that might come too early. He might have to showcase that one at home."
Charles Dunne is the only other absentee as his call-up to the Republic of Ireland U21 squad for their European Championship qualifier against Germany on Monday night coincides with the final match of his three game ban.
Ainsworth will have to decide whether to stick with the side that put Exeter to the sword in the week or revert back to the one that saw off Southend last Saturday.
Steven Craig and Dean Morgan are the men in form in attack but Matt McClure scored after being given a chance on Tuesday night.
Likewise defender Anthony Stewart capped a fine display that included a clean sheet with the second goal, and Ainsworth will have to decide whether to keep him in the team or recall the rested Gary Doherty and Leon Johnson.
