Dan Scarr is becoming a mainstay of the Wycombe side.

The on-loan Birmingham defender is on a run of 10 games in a row at the heart of the Blues backline and has impressed whilst a load of injuries hit Wycombe hard at the back.

He scored his first goal for the club with a wonderful volley against Coventry just before Christmas and his mature performances since the turn of the year have been praised by manager Gareth Ainsworth.

Scarr has only played a handful of professional games in his fledgling career but as the season enters a crunch time, the 23-year-old has hit really good form and is loving life as part of the Wanderers squad.

He said: “I wake up pinching myself at this opportunity.

“On Facebook, it shows what I was doing last year or two years ago and I had one pop up recently when I was playing for Redditch so you do have to pinch yourself but it is a good feeling.

“It is always good to play. That is why I came here. It is unfortunate for some of the players as to why tit has happened [with injuries] but we have a good squad and everyone can replace everyone so it is good to be a part of."

Scarr has partnered the likes of Adam El-Abd, Anthony Stewart and Nathan McGinley this season and with the injury crisis hitting at the turn of the year, he formed a good, yet inexperienced, partnership with McGinley.

He added: “When I was partnering Nathan, I suppose I felt the role of senior partner a little bit but to be fair he came and did very well as he was focusing on his own game.

“I didn’t have to mother him so that was good and he more than held his own.”

Whilst the strikers are getting the plaudits, Scarr is disappointed that being part of the defence, they haven’t kept a clean sheet in the league since Boxing Day.

With that in mind, Scarr added: “I am disappointed with the amount of goals we are conceding.

“Me and Adam have spoken about the goals we are conceding as a team.

“To be fair, a lot of the goals we have conceded haven’t really been down too much to defensive mistakes.

“They have either been really good goals or we have conceded goals against some of the better teams and it is harder to keep clean sheets against those better sides.

“If we can start to eradicate some of those goals I think it will put us in better stead and you will see more stability moving forward.

“The strikers are doing their job and we need to concentrate on our job so it does give us the extra determination to do well.

“I think on the whole we have been defending well. We haven’t been cut open or anything like that. We keep thinking how have we conceded two or three but hopefully we can turn it round.”

With games coming thick and fast, Scarr is looking forward to tomorrow’s test.

He said: “It is good when games come thick and fast as you stay in a routine and we go into games with keeping that momentum high and the confidence going and hopefully we can continue this run.”
