Hoskins marks comeback with a goal

The Argus: Will Hoskins in action for Albion under-21s today Will Hoskins in action for Albion under-21s today

Will Hoskins made a goalscoring return from injury today for Albion’s under-21s.

The striker marked his comeback from a year out following a cruciate knee ligament injury with the opening goal in a 1-1 draw against Bristol City’s development side at Lancing.

Hoskins was withdrawn as planned after completing a lively half-hour leading the line.

The 27-year-old swept home a Jeffrey Monakana pullback with a first time right foot strike after only nine minutes.

He also pulled another shot wide of Robins keeper David Richards’ left-hand post and was just off-target with a header.

The Robins hit back ten minutes from time through Stephen Pearson, the former Derby County midfielder who scored their winner in the 2007 Championship play-off final.

Hoskins said: “It was a great feeling to be back. You can obviously do a lot in training but it is never the same until you get into a game.”

I don't care who the competition were, what level the match was - a goal is a goal, and will do nothing but good for Will and his fight back to the first team. A bit of good news ahead of what i'm hoping will be spectacular news later!

Great news. still a long way from the first team but extremely encouraging. And to think someone was saying on here last week that Hoskins was in a back in a protective boot :-) Wrong sort of boot!

And someone wrote just this morning that the hunt was on for a supporting striker for Ulloa... Look no further than Lancing. You know it makes sense.

He scored a goal. With no Crofts, Ulloa is the only one scoring at the moment. Get him in the side - simples!

You guys are clueless , he played 30 minutes ..he is 6 weeks away from being fit, that's if he has no other related injuries !
I wonder where he would play if we continue with 1 up front? Out off contract very soon with FFP rules do we need him?
Before you all jump,down my throat , think about it? Cms fit Leo Buckley where would Hoskins figure?

Exactly, the guy was not meant to play at all this season, long long road back for a twisting forward with that injury, how did he do? In that sprinting etc

Good to finally see someone comment on here who works with Hoskins every day and knows precisely how long before he's first-team ready.

What, you DON'T work with the club's medical department?

ONLY JOKING!!

Basically, the lad's already many weeks ahead of schedule, so there's no point just agreeing with someone else's estimation of 6 weeks as none of us actually know.

Ha ha he has to start what amounts to is a pre season, add the cold weather and heavy pitches and it's slowly slowly.

I am sure on another thread you were demanding we sign a striker.
Whilst I agree he will not be ready until late march at the earliest, You are now saying there is no room for him in the squad?

Well, Mark , I think you have all but written Hoskins off. It's not written in stone that he will incur related injuries. With my 'clueless' pretend managers hat on, I have actually pencilled him in for a sub's appearance against Boro at the end of next month. I would not bank on Buckley remaining fit and Ulloa is starting to exhibit signs of being injury prone.
Much as I like CMS, a 100% fit Hoskins is more than capable of competing with him for a place.

Yes but cms is on 17k a week ! I was thinking more about the system ,,! Do we change our system ( I don't think we will)
The other point is what player comes back, is it the same as before injury?
Cms running about was his signature .. Will that be the same?
Hoskins will have to earn a deal .. Good talent , just never delivered here.
As for Leo, playing while carrying a injury is not good, and further stresses and strains can come from that,

I still struggle with the lone striker system, which seems to do nothing for our goal tally. I would like to see a fit Hoskins just behind Ulloa. A bit fanciful at the moment.
Oscar might yet gamble in the closing weeks by changing the setup. An energetic midfield is essential and increasingly, I think Stephens has the engine and ability. Ulloa is shouldering the burden down the middle on his own and are his niggling injury issues reflecting that?

Sorry had to enter the fray. Would love ,even on the short glimpses I have seen of him ,a fully fit Hoskins. His first touch was very good something Cms and others have lacked. Only time will tell with his fitness think a season of pay as you play required for Will he owes the club that if Oscar likes what he sees.
Sean Dyche mentioned how Sam Vokes had developed faster than he dared hope at the weekend. This shows what good coaching and a good system can do for a player. He certainly never looked like scoring regularly for us, but here's the rub ,on another thread Hovite mentioned about seeing a team grow and develop under Oscar with young players coming though. I am fully behind this statement ,as after last season I think we all me included became to impatient as we were near promotion . It will be all the sweeter with home grown/developed talent if we get promotion. We will get there I am sure.
Would happily see tonight's game go to pens,football funny game lets hope we do a Wigan tonight.

Yes, I heard Sean Dyche on TalkSport raving about Vokes and his "technical ability" I doubt there was one fan last year who would have wanted to sign him permanently, me included!

Brill! Always felt sorry for him because Gus behaved like he was integral to his plans and then never gave him a look-in! Played him for last 10 mins against Newcastle so he must have felt pressure to deliver in a very narrow window of opportunity and threaded coolly through Krulls legs to score -
Always wondered if he might not prove to be the surprise package - marvellous news!

Yes - brilliant cameo against Newcastle and then completely ignored by our former manager for, I think, about six successive games after that. One of the reasons I stared to get disillusioned with Poyet.

Always wondered if he might not prove to be the surprise package - marvellous news!
Yes - brilliant cameo against Newcastle and then completely ignored by our former manager for, I think, about six successive games after that. One of the reasons I stared to get disillusioned with Poyet.
Yep that was Gus at his strangest best. Winged all season about needing a goal scorer then Hoskins delivers in 10 mins and then gets no lookin for 6 games ..bizarre? I think Vicente had a valid point or two about Gus.

Humour being the operative word. They are jesting in a good spirited bit of banter. Don't think anyone is seriously saying rush him back this week. Blimey!
