On-loan Portsmouth midfielder Scott Allan will be available for the final Championship game of the season at Nottingham Forest after West Bromwich Albion decided against recalling the 20-year-old. "After the sad news of them going down at the weekend, there was a consideration to bring him back this week," Albion assistant manager Keith Downing told his club's official website. "But the fact is Michael still needs him for one more game and we want to keep Scott there to help Michael out as much as possible.

"In terms of injuries from our point of view, there is no emergency to bring Scott back so he will fulfil the last fixture for Michael."
