Boyd Relishing KC Return

8 May 2015

George Boyd is relishing his first trip back to the KC Stadium this weekend as the Clarets look to keep their survival hopes alive.

Boyd helped his former employers to promotion during an initial loan spell, before helping them preserve their Premier League status and reaching an FA Cup final.

But despite those fond memories, the tireless Clarets winger is fully focused on gaining three vital away points and help to put pressure on those above them.

He said: “I’m looking forward to seeing a few old faces as I had a great time there but it’s a massive game and the focus is on winning.

“We’ll go there and it’s big for both teams so they might have a few more nerves and as we have all season we will play to win and try and put our stamp on the game.

“We were comfortable at 11 v 11 last week and created quite a number of chances and after we went down to ten men it was difficult.

“But we didn’t get turned over, we showed our fighting spirit and the character we’ve got so we’ll take that in the weekend.”

Many were looking at the Clarets final four fixtures as a group, but that defeat at West Ham means victory is a must to keep slender hopes of survival alive and focusing on one game at a time is a mantra more prevalent than ever.

Boyd added: “It’s important to take each game as it comes of course now because we’ve got to win this one at the weekend.

“If we can do that then it piles a bit more pressure on to those above us and it will give us a fighting chance.”
