Wanderers striker Craig Mackail-Smith is delighted at the competition for places up front with the likes of Nathan Tyson and Scott Kashket returning from injury.

The 33-year-old has made the right hand side of the front three his own since signing from Luton Town and has bagged seven goals in all competitions, including a hat-trick against Crawley Town a few weeks ago.

The Blues have an embarrassment of riches in the striking department and Mackail-Smith explained he welcomes the fact he has to fight for his place.

He said: "It is fantastic.We have been looking forward to welcoming Nathan and Scott back and it makes us a lot stronger.

"There is competition for places all over the pitch now and that is what we need. We have players coming back who can put the pressure on and make the boys perform.

"I enjoy the competition. I have to maintain my form and keep scoring goals and obviously I want to stay in the team and keep doing well if I can and keep putting the performance in."

With five league goals and two FA Cup goals to his name in a Chairboys shirt, Mackail-Smith said he is very pleased with his current form.

He added: "I should have scored against Stevenage. Had a couple of chances that were blocked but I feel in really good form at the moment and should be scoring when I get the opportunity."

Mackail-Smith signed for Wanderers back in August and has already endeared himself to the Wanderers faithful with his tireless displays and selfless attitude on the pitch.

The former Peterborough man feels at home in south Bucks. He said: "I am having a fantastic time here and I am really enjoying it.

"The boys are great and we are performing well. We have got ourselves into a fantastic position and hopefully coming into Christmas we will be there or thereabouts and closing in on the top three.

"Hopefully, come the second half of the season the games will still be exciting and we have a great promotion push."
