Wanderers forward Craig Mackail-Smith revealed he was a doubt for the match at Crewe as he was bedridden with a nasty bug leading up to the game.

The former Peterborough forward scored his ninth goal of the season deep into injury time to give Wanderers a third league win on the bounce.

However, Mackail-Smith explained he was 'touch-and'go' all week but fortunately felt a lot better on Friday.

He said: "At the beginning of the week I was touch-and go. I wasn't very well at all and as the week went on I felt better and better.

"I wasn't allowed to come in Thursday in case I spread it to everyone and went in and did a bit on my own on Friday.

"I felt loads better before the game and I am glad the gaffer included me in the squad so I could pop up at the end."

With a plethora of forwards in form at the club, Mackail-Smith welcomes the competition for places with some excellent players vying for places in the side.

He added: "We have a fantastic array of forwards at the club. I don't think we had a defender on the bench.

"We have a lot of attacking options and we have players up front who can come on and change the game."

The fans travelled in their numbers and gave vociferous support to the team throughout and Mackail-Smith praised their impact.

"They were fantastic and with us all the way through," said the 33-year-old.

"We could hear them singing and getting behind us and it drives us on to try and get the three points and hopefully get promoted."
