Gus to loan striker following Macca injury blow

Gus to loan striker following Macca injury blow

Gus Poyet has admitted he will be turning to the emergency loan market after confirming Craig Mackail-Smith will miss the remainder of the season.

The Seagulls' top scorer is reported to have suffered a ruptured Achilles at Bristol City last night, leaving Poyet with only two first team strikers at his disposal - after Will Hoskins' season was also cut short with knee ligament damage.

Talking about the impact on his striking options, Poyet told the Argus, "It changes things completely. I like to have four strikers at least. We had three and now we've got two. I absolutely hate the loan market but I am not going to be so naive not to use it.

"We need to be lucky. We can't pay fortunes so it will depend on help from another club as well. I am looking anywhere. We have got two or three. Maybe a month ago they were available but things change. Now we need to check and sort it out as soon as possible."
