MATT McClure's ankle injury sustained last night isn't believed to be too serious.

Blues' joint top scorer had to come off early in the second half of the defeat to Plymouth after rolling his ankle while getting in one of the few shots at goal Wanderers managed in a below-par attacking display.

But manager Gareth Ainsworth said it doesn't look too bad, having seen fellow forward Paris Cowan-Hall suffer ligament damage to his ankle on Saturday.

The Blues boss said Cowan-Hall is likely to be out for a month.

He said: "He's turned his ankle, so we'll have a look at it. I don't think it's nasty, like a Paris one on Saturday. It's bad enough he's had to come off. He knew straight away he had to come off.

"We'll see where we are on Saturday - there's a couple close to coming back.

"Paris is at least four weeks at the moment. We won't be seeing him until the last month of the season, so that's a big blow to us as well."
