Craig Mackail-Smith leaves the action
Craig Mackail-Smith has been booked in for surgery – and told he can be back for pre-season.
Albion’s top scorer left Tuesday’s 0-0 draw at Bristol City with a ruptured Achilles.
He was assessed today and will have an operation on Monday.
Albion boss Gus Poyet and his off-field team discussed their options this morning.
They are studying the loan market in the hunt for a replacement.
Poyet said tonight he is expecting Mackail-Smith back “for pre-season, for sure,”
He added: “It’s a big blow to lose him.”
