Mackail-Smith makes comeback

The Argus: Craig Mackail-Smith launches his long-awaited comeback at Brentford today Craig Mackail-Smith launches his long-awaited comeback at Brentford today

Albion striker Craig Mackail-Smith makes his comeback from ten months out in the under 21's at Brentford today (1pm).

Mackail-Smith has been missing since rupturing an Achilles at Bristol City last March and then breaking an ankle during his recovery.

He tweeted this morning: "Thank you for all your messages, means a lot. Excited to be playing some part in the game today, another step closer to a 1st team game."

Mackail-Smith is the only over-age player in Simon Ireland's squad, although new signing Jeff Monakana is likely to make his second appearance since his move from Preston North End.

Albion from: Smith; Walton; Deen, Dallison, Rea, Hunt, Asmundsson, Monakana, Starkey, Mackail-Smith, Dickenson, Richards, Harris, Barclay, Muitt.

REally top news. I hope he has a good game, and we can look forward to him returning to the first team squad.

Fantastic news, and what makes it more unbelievable is that many on here claimed as fact that he wouldn't play again this season! It's almost as if their 'sources' were plucked from thin air ;-)

Brilliant for the club, the fans, but most importantly, CMS himself. The best news we've had all January.

No wonder we havent pushed through a deal for Mason! Hed be behind Ulloa and possibly Obika already... Now CMS is nearly back. Think hell suit Garcia's philosophy much more than Poyet's... showed what hes capable of against leeds a couple of seasons ago lets hope he finds a way of producing that form week in week out!

At last some great news!! Also, an interesting article for once.

Hopefully there will be some more exciting news shortly.

Can't wait for him to be back in the squad, agree it's like a new signing
