Dunfermline Athletic striker Colin Nish is to return for a second spell on loan to Alloa Athletic.

The 19-year-old helped the Wasps win promotion from the Second Division last season and this time will team up with Dunfermline coach Hamish French.

Now he is the latest fringe player to be shipped out, on a three-month deal, for first-team duty elsewhere by Pars manager Jimmy Calderwood.

Indeed, there will be no recall for Andy Tod and Brian Reid, despite the Premier League side's lengthening injury list, Michel Doesburg being the latest casualty.

Singled out

Tod was singled out for praise by Stockport County manager Andy Kilner for his role in their 4-3 defeat of Bolton Wanderers.

First employed as a striker, Tod scored one and made one.

Then, as Bolton hit back, he reverted to defence to help his side record a vital victory in the English First Division.

Reid, meanwhile, has helped Third Division strugglers Blackpool to three victories.

Even so, Calderwood has promised the two English clubs that he would only recall the players in an emergency.

Groin operation

The Dunfermline manager has actually promised to move more players out on loan deals to keep them match fit while the Under-21 league shuts down between November and February.

Former Motherwell defender Doesburg is the latest to join the long-term injured, a groin operation ruling him out for the next six weeks.

Meanwhile, Dunfermline have announced that they will play a testimonial match against Raja in Casablanca during the winter break on 17th January.

Two days earlier, they will also play Dutch side Willem II.
