Striker heads back to Peterborough for a third time

Hatters striker Craig Mackail-Smith has rejoined Peterborough United on loan until the end of the season.

The move will mark a third spell at London Road for the 32-year-old forward, who was given his break in the professional game by the Posh in 2007 before joining Brighton four years later.

He returned Peterborough for a brief loan spell as he regained fitness following long-term injury in 2014, before signing for the Hatters in the summer of 2015.

Mackail-Smith has since made 40 appearances for the Town, but has found game time hard to come by since returning to action in October following the broken leg he suffered at Plymouth last March.

The most recent of his five goals came from the penalty spot in the Checkatrade Trophy win over Chesterfield three weeks ago (pictured above), with his latest of his six appearances this term – four of them from the bench – coming in last Saturday’s win over Cambridge.

“Unfortunately we haven’t seen the best of Craig due to his injuries, but with a prolonged run of games I’m sure he’ll be an asset,” said manager Nathan Jones. “We wish him all the best on his return to Peterborough.”

A view shared by all at Kenilworth Road. Good luck Macca!
