Brentford midfielder Toumani Diagouraga has been recalled to Griffin Park.

The 26-year-old Frenchman, who captained Pompey in last night’s 3-0 defeat at Rochdale, made eight appearances during his loan spell at Fratton Park.

Diagouraga wore the armband on two occasions but will play no further part in Richie Barker’s side’s battle to avoid relegation from the Football League.

The Blues currently sit in 22nd place in League Two, two points above the drop zone.
