The Scotland striker has been sidelined for more than a year after rupturing his Achilles against Bristol City last March.

But Mackail-Smith fired himself into contention for the trip to Oakwell with two goals for Albion's Under-21 side in a 2-2 draw with Charlton.

Assistant-boss Nathan Jones told the club website: "It was fantastic to see him back.

"He showed a real desire, looked as close to the CMS we know. His first goal was typical of him - he took it really well. For his second he showed real potency and strength.

"He has shown in that game he is capable of playing 90 minutes, scoring in injury time and that he's ready now.

"I am sure he will be full of adrenaline and desire and we are hopeful he will be an important player for us towards the end of the season."

t all started going downhill when they started putting a photo of the writer along side their story. Journalists started to think that 'they' are the story, rather than what they write. Smug, self obsessed & up their own arse's. That sums up the majority of newspaper sports reporters.

he reason so much sh*t is written about football is because there are so many people who want to read sh*t about football. Now shut up, take my money, and tell me Ronaldo is going to sign for Van Haal and that Mick McCarthy is signing Peter Crouch on loan.
