CRAIG’S LOVING IT AT THE HATTERS
LUTON Town striker Craig Mackail-Smith has fallen back in love with football.
The 31-year-old’s career turned sour last season at Brighton, but he is enjoying playing again after a summer move to the Hatters.
He said: “It’s just nice to be playing regularly again after a difficult couple of years.
“The first year and a half at Brighton I felt I was finding my feet but injury hit me hard. Not playing regular football for two and a half years takes its toll. It is a long road back when you are not playing every day.
“The only way I was going to get fitter and stronger was to play games consistently but I never got that chance.
“I lost my enjoyment of football towards the end at Brighton but I am slowly rekindling that love. It is a case of finding that enjoyment again, doing well with Luton and seeing where that takes me.
“I still feel I have got unfinished business in the Championship. I feel I am good enough to play at that level and score goals so hopefully I will get that opportunity again.”
