Aston Villa have recalled left-back Nicky Shorey from his loan spell at Championship side Nottingham Forest.Shorey had been with Billy Davies' side for the past two months, helping them to second in the Championship table as they chase promotion. [LNB]With first-choice Villa left-back Stephen Warnock absent because of a shin injury, boss Martin O'Neill has opted to recall the 28-year-old. [LNB]Shorey was on the substitutes' bench for Wednesday's match with Arsenal. [LNB]Luke Young was switched from right-back to fill Warnock's role. [LNB]Warnock edged out Shorey - who has two England caps - in O'Neill's plans after arriving for £8m from Blackburn earlier this season. [LNB]The move will disappoint Davies who was hoping to keep the player at the City Ground for the remainder of the current campaign on loan.
