DEAN Morgan and Kortney Hause could both play a part in the Blues squad to face Morecambe, with manager Gareth Ainsworth encouraged by their recovery from injury.

A groin problem has kept young defender Hause out since the festive period, while joint top scorer Morgan is on his way back from a hamstring pull.

Ainsworth is optimistic the pair could be in contention on Saturday - or if not they should be good to go in next weekend's M40 derby against Oxford United at Adams Park.

He said: "Dean and Kortney are very close. They could be back in training in the next couple of days. They will be in contention for one of the two games, not both. We'll assess them today."

There's also good news for striker Jon-Paul Pittman, who had a cast aiding his recovery from a knee injury removed this week.

Ainsworth said: "JP is out of his brace. Hopefully he can rejoin training within two or three weeks."

Doesn't matter if Morgan is 100% fit he'll still be on the bench so Kuffour can start, WHY?
