The Scotland striker's girlfriend Amber last week gave birth to his daughter at home with the help of her father, Peterborough director of football Barry Fry.

New dad Mackail-Smith has now turned his attention to getting fit following a long-term Achilles injury and hopes to be back in action within six weeks.

"Hopefully five to six weeks will be the time when I'll be back playing."
