Milner and Taylor are fixtures in his set-up, Pearce has not been able to find a place in his 25-man squad for Guthrie in the last Euro qualifier with Portugal at Wembley a week tomorrow.

But should any of the 10 midfielders drop out, then Pearce has made it clear that Guthrie would be a prime candidate as a replacement for what is an attractive fixture as England could qualify for the finals.

Pearce: "I am having a good look at Danny Guthrie. He falls into the category of my age group.

"Anyone who is playing first-team football in the Premier League at his age has to be taken seriously.

"He has not been our squad yet. We watched him at Bolton Wanderers last season and part of my job here tonight is to have another look at him."
