Gareth Ainsworth hailed loan signing Danny Rowe after the Rotherham United youngster’s “fantastic” debut on Saturday.
The 18-year-old lined up alongside Aaron Pierre in an inexperienced Wanderers centre-back partnership, but Blues defended superbly to restrict promotion-chasing Scunthorpe to few chances.
Ainsworth said: “We’ve got one lad making his league debut and one lad made his league debut on Tuesday. Before the game you’ve got one 90 minutes between your centre halves and you do worry.
“I’ve done my research on Danny. I have to admit I didn’t see him live and that was a risk, but I did a lot of research, spoke to people and saw a few clips.
“What I saw against Scunthorpe was more than enough against - it was a fantastic debut.
“Aaron is growing into a solid centre half who’s going to be feared. To get a clean sheet is really credible. Not many are going to get nil against at Glanford Park.”
