League Two basement side Notts County have signed Wycombe Wanderers striker Craig Mackail-Smith on loan until the end of the season, it has been confirmed on the club website.
The 34-year-old former Scotland international has scored three goals in 25 appearances this season, following a five-club career where he has scored 185 goals, which has included three spells with Peterborough United.
So will Mackail-Smith be the man to save Notts County from the drop?
“Definitely not on his own.
“But he is a brilliantly smart signing for the Magpies, a proven lower league goal scorer.
“Others still need to step up, but Mackail-Smith will deliver.”
“It’d be unfair to pin the Magpies survival hopes on him, but he can certainly make a difference.
“He’s not the quickest or the most prolific anymore, but he’s the type of player to give his all, and he will make the ball stick up top.
“The Magpies have got a good player on their hands here.”
“I don’t know, does he come from the planet Krypton?
“If not, then no.
“He’s a decent player, but he looked average in the Wycombe side last season and I can’t help but think he’ll struggle in a remotely average team.”
