Cowan-Hall to miss out against former team mates
PARIS Cowan-Hall will miss out on playing against his former club Plymouth Argyle tomorrow after failing to recover from injury.
The former Pilgrims winger is still a week away from joining in full training after straining his knee ligaments last month.
Striker Jon-Paul Pittman is also out with a back strain but Wanderers are optimistic Josh Scowen will have recovered from an ankle knock in time to make the trip to Home Park.
Charles Dunne returns from suspension and Dean Morgan and Matt Bloomfield are expected to be in contention as illness and a tight groin kept them out of Saturday's match at Hartlepool.
And Blues boss Gareth Ainsworth said the side that won last week shouldn't expect to retain their place in the starting XI tomorrow.
He said: "It doesn't matter just because we've won or because somebody scored - it doesn't mean they automatically get a place the next week. The next week is a totally different game, it's not a follow on from the game we've just had, and I pick my team on that."
Looking ahead to the Plymouth game he said: "They are a good test for us. It's a hostile place, big pitch, and quite a long way to go. They have aspirations of being a big club - they were in the Championship not so long ago so this will be a big test for us, and we won't be taking this one lightly."
Ainsworth added while Cowan-Hall may have wanted to make a point to his former employers, he has nothing to prove to him.
He said: "He had this one targeted. I told him don't worry, Plymouth fans know what they are missing by you performing against other teams and being in the papers.
"He has nothing to go down and prove. I brought him here because I think he's a great player with great potential, and hopefully he can prove that week in, week out when he's fit."
