"We're just try to give him a platform to showcase his talents and to try to grow as a goalkeeper," said Mowbray.
"Scott is still a young boy and, as he says to me, he hopes to be a different goalie in four or five years to the one he is now.
"He wants to be better in every department. At 22 you are a long way away from being the goalkeeper you want to be and Scott is on that journey.
"If he can play for England then hopefully it will show him he is at the right club, playing at the right level.
"If he gets the call-up we will be delighted for him but it's more important that he is fit and ready to go again on Saturday because I'm sure he will have plenty to do then."
