Not making a signing would be a great vote of confidence in our existing strike force and might spur them on to even greater heights. And if Baldock does get injured then CH will just have to try Knockaert in a more central role again.
Btw, am I correct in thinking that Skalak has played as a second striker in the past? We've tried both AK and Murphy there, but not him ....
Solly has played in a central #10 role too.
But I would still bring in at least 1 more striker to minimise risk. Injuries are the biggest threat to a top 2 finish.

Everyone other than Baldock, that's been asked to play the Baldock role has had 2 things in common:-
A - They've looked a shadow of themselves, sometimes during the same game.
2 - They have been completely ineffectual.
C - The Albion have suffered on the wing.
I now expect Pravda to appear and tell us all that in fact wingers coming 'inside' has been the biggest success this season.
This current run the squad is on, coincides with everybody doing one job.
The one job they have spent most of their professional lives doing.
I have no idea what the fascination NSC has with putting square pegs into round holes.
It's failed so many times, Liam Rosenior is the exception that proves the rule.
If SB had returned to sicknote/suspension status, I have no doubt the team would have lost x games, x points and we'd be bricking ourselves about players wanting pastures new.
'The' striker has been needed for years, the market has consistently overheated for all those years, but right here and now the club (Tony) will just have to suck it up.
A No 10 who wouldnt cost a lot of money and possibly could make the grade but would he be accepted Ched Evans
Lewis Grabben interest according to the mirror. That one crops up every window too
Seeing kids in the school or in the parks with Albion shirts instead of the big clubs and easy ones, that’s it. We have done it.
