IPSWICH have recalled defender Tommy Smith from his loan spell at Griffin Park.
The New Zealand World Cup hopeful was due to be with Brentford until April 7, but Tractor Boys boss Roy Keane has activated a 24-hour recall clause to bring him back to Portman Road.
He said: "Tommy came back to train with us one day last week.
"So it was always my intention to have him back soon. He's had a run of games under his belt and is looking sharp."
The news could throw a spanner in the works to Wycombe Wanderers' hopes of keeping Bees centre-half Alan Bennett .
His initial one-month loan expires today, and boss Andy Scott was only willing to extend the deal if Smith stayed at Griffin Park.
