Dallas returns to Bees

Brentford have recalled winger Stuart Dallas from his loan spell at League Two club Northampton.

The 22-year-old Irishman moved to Sixfields in October and scored three goals in 12 appearances.

But he could not prevent the Cobblers slipping to the foot of the Football League on Saturday following a 4-1 defeat by Wycombe, a result which cost manager Aidy Boothroyd his job.

A Town spokesman said: "We would like to thank Stuart for his efforts and wish him well for the future."

Dallas could be added to the Bees squad which hosts Swindon on Boxing Day.
