Injury setback for Mackail-Smith

The Argus: Craig Mackail-Smith Craig Mackail-Smith

Craig Mackail-Smith has suffered a setback in his recovery from injury.

A groin tear in training has delayed the Albion striker's comeback schedule in the development team by two weeks.

Mackail-Smith has been out of first team action since last March with Achilles and ankle injuries.

He stepped up his comeback recently with two appearances in the development team.

Head coach Oscar Garcia said: "Craig had a tear, a setback in training. He'll be a little bit longer. He's with the physios." Albion have doubts about Will Buckley and Solly March (both hamstring) for Wigan's visit tomorrow.

Leo Ulloa (calf) is also a slight concern. The Argentinian should be okay but is unlikely to start against Wigan and at Hull in Monday's FA Cup fifth round replay.

Buckley made his first start of the year in Monday's FA Cup draw with Hull at the Amex before March replaced him on the right-wing for the second half.

Oscar said: "He (Buckley) is not fit enough to play 90 minutes, He didn't feel 100 per cent and it takes time. At half-time he said he didn't feel really well to keep playing.

"We have to go slowly with him. We don't want him to get injured again because there is only two months of the season left and we want everybody fit enough to play.

"Leo is okay but we have to see how he trains today and how he is tomorrow. Solly March as well - we have some players not at 100 per cent. Solly is feeling his hamstring a little bit."

WTF, kick us in the nuts when we least need it. Cms, it was inevitable he would pull/strain something trying to get back, but both Buckley and March out with hamstring strains is something we could do without, are we doing something wrong in training as we seem to have a lot of these same injuries? Also, if Ulloa doesn't make these two games where are the goals going to come from? I'm concerned big time, the next 4 days are vital for our season, it's time for every man in the squad to dig deep and show they are worthy of wearing the blue and white.

It's not the training - the hamstrings are suffered by LuaLua, Buckley and March, players that all have explosive pace in common. These speed merchants will always be at the mercy of their hammys.

If you read the article, OG says that LU is unlikely to play both games, so he will almost certainly feature tomorrow, and get the goal to beat Wigan. He will then probably be on the bench for the Hull game on Monday. Buckers is OK, but regaining match fitness. He will appear for some time in both matches, as will probably KLL and Solly, although none will pplay for 90 minutes. Rodders will feature, but again is still trying to find match fitness, so unlikely to pay 90 mins in both matches.
Real shame for CMS, as a start on Monday would have been great to see. So all not yet lost, but we are managing depleted resources up front and the back 4.

We have used the loan system, just not well enough judging by Obika's end product to date. Shame to see Joe Mason going back on loan to Bolton given he was supposedly a target. You can never know if he'd have scored a few for us, but at least it would have been another option. Bit of a worry these injuries stacking up. The squad looks pretty thin at the moment, with a lack of goals and with injuries to wingers (March adding to the injury-prone nature of Buckley and LuaLua).

Shame we weren't able to get Craig Conway. He'd have perfectly covered us on the flanks. With him starting, we'd have had Lopez, March, LuaLua, Orlandi and Buckley, meaning that even with 3 injuries we'd still have an option for the other flank and a player on the bench.

Clean Sheet you are flogging a dead horse mate, there are some on here that comment for effect and nothing more, and this fool is one of them.

Had it not been for he ankle injury sustained by CMS after coming back from his long standing injury, he would have been playing by now, and whether or not having him back a few weeks ago would have made any difference we will have to wait and see. Hoskins is now on the road to recovery, with a little luck he should be back to full fittnes in the coming weeks.
Going by Oscar's willingness to trust the young lads, if Hoskins looks good on his return I am sure Oscar will give him his chance. Within four weeks from now we will have four contacted strikers and Obika available for selection, so I can't see us borrowing another, FFP and all that.

In terms of cover for other positions we are short one center back, I would like to think that we can remedy this by using the loan market. I think we have enough for all of the other positions, but if a talented creative midfielder were to become available for loan, that would be good.

Bid changes in the lineup from those that played against Hull followed by, big changes for the replay, maybe we will see Rodriguez replace Ulloa against Hull, and I would not be surprised if Spanish Dave featured in one of the matches as a starter.

I doubt either CMS or Hoskins will start a game this season, neither will recover correctly without a long slow programme .. I hope neither player is "pushed " to play till next year.. These heavy pitches are what is pulling leg and hamstrings.

How can you say this? TB bought our stadium for us for £110 mil. He is building our Academy, £40 mil. How much have you contributed?
Clean Sheet you are flogging a dead horse mate, there are some on here that comment for effect and nothing more, and this fool is one of them.

Had it not been for he ankle injury sustained by CMS after coming back from his long standing injury, he would have been playing by now, and whether or not having him back a few weeks ago would have made any difference we will have to wait and see. Hoskins is now on the road to recovery, with a little luck he should be back to full fittnes in the coming weeks.
Going by Oscar's willingness to trust the young lads, if Hoskins looks good on his return I am sure Oscar will give him his chance. Within four weeks from now we will have four contacted strikers and Obika available for selection, so I can't see us borrowing another, FFP and all that.

In terms of cover for other positions we are short one center back, I would like to think that we can remedy this by using the loan market. I think we have enough for all of the other positions, but if a talented creative midfielder were to become available for loan, that would be good.

Bid changes in the lineup from those that played against Hull followed by, big changes for the replay, maybe we will see Rodriguez replace Ulloa against Hull, and I would not be surprised if Spanish Dave featured in one of the matches as a starter.
I doubt either CMS or Hoskins will start a game this season, neither will recover correctly without a long slow programme .. I hope neither player is "pushed " to play till next year.. These heavy pitches are what is pulling leg and hamstrings.
They will play a few games so the Argus can put some spin on it for their knew contracts.
