Teenager sets the bar for Blues
MIDFIELDER Josh Scowan was one of the few shards of light to emerge from Wanderer's dismal loss at Dagenham yesterday.
The teenager, making his League debut, was a calm presence in the middle of the field and made the most of what little decent possession he did get.
Caretaker manager Gareth Ainsworth said: “I thought Josh Scowan was Man of the Match. I thought he was outstanding.
“I said people would get chances and he's taken his chance with both hands. I don't like giving individual praise, but I thought Josh deserved some on his League debut.”
He wasn't the only youngster given a run though, with Wanderers resembling an academy team by the final whistle.
Ainsworth said: “There were five teenagers on the pitch at the end, but I thought they equipped themselves well.
“I want to look at positives and say we've got five good teenagers here at Wycombe Wanderers coming through, rather than I wish I had the other squad members available. That will happen when it happens.”
He won't have much time though.
Wanderers, who are now second from bottom in League Two, take on Plymouth Argyle on Tuesday evening before Torquay come to Adams Park on Saturday.
Ainsworth said: “Possibly nobody would have expected anything away, but if you win your home games you get enough points to get up that league.
"We've got two winnable games and I'll be giving everything I've got. It's a very, very important week for Wycombe Wanderers. We haven't been this low for a long time so it's tough."
