Our former Scottish international striker Craig Mackail-Smith will miss the start of the coming season.

Back in March, in a League Two fixture against Plymouth Argyle at Home Park, the very place Luton will start their 2016 / 2017 campaign, Mackail-Smith fractured the tibia bone in a leg-break.

It appears that his recovery period hasn`t been as we`d have hoped because it is being reported in the local media that the striker has undergone further surgery on the injury.

Nathan Jones, talking about Mackail-Smith, has informed the local media that Craig has had a pin inserted in the bone with the boss remarking,

“Craig is still recovering from his fracture at the end of last season, and it hasn`t healed as well as we`d have liked, so he`s had it pinned – which we`re told is the best way of getting him fit and strong again.”

It is hoped, according to Jones, Mackail-Smith will be back in contention for a first team spot around the middle of September.

Here at Vital Luton Town we`re wishing Craig a speedy recovery and we hope to see him wearing our colours very soon.
