Edworthy was undergoing a hospital scan on his injured leg today, but hopes are high that
his injuries are not so serious as first thought.

"I thought I had done something serious, but I am happier after the X rays.
Hopefully the scan will also bring me a positive result and I can get some idea when I can
set a target for a return.
"Obviously I would like to think I could play on Saturday at Sheffield Wednesday.
I have been enjoying my football this season and no player likes to miss any
