HUDDERSFIELD Town winger Lionel Ainsworth is reported to be on his way back to the Galpharm after loan club Brentford sent him packing.

The on-loan winger stormed off down the tunnel after being subbed in Saturday's draw with Yeovil.

Brentford boss Andy Scott said the 22-year-old would never play for the first team again .

Ainsworth had a run-out for the reserves on Monday, and planned to apologise to his boss and team mates the following day.

But, according to reports in Brentford, he has been told there's no chance of a reprieve by Scott, and has returned to Hudddersfield instead.

"He didn't tell me personally," said Ainsworth.

"I got a call from my agent after the reserve game on Monday to say they didn't want me back, so I didn't have a chance to apologise in person.

"I'm going to go back to Huddersfield now and get my head down."

Ainsworth, who only made 11 starts during his first year at Town, made a solitary start in his half-season long loan at Griffin Park, and accused Scott of not giving him a fair crack of the whip.

He added: "I came to Brentford to play games, but I made just one start, and that was with three games left.

"It's not enough, and I don't know why he didn't pick me."
