Boyd Eager To Clip Seagulls' Wings

21 November 2015

George Boyd is eager to end Brighton and Hove Albion’s unbeaten run this Sunday, with home advantage key for the Clarets forward.

The wide man’s solitary goal of the season came at Turf Moor this season.

And after going close in recent weeks, the Scottish international and current Player of the Year is desperate to register on the score sheet once again.

He said: “After a few days off I’ve had a few good weeks training, the boys are flying and we are now looking forward to Sunday.

“I’m back raring to go and I’m hoping to take Brighton’s unbeaten record at the weekend, by getting the three points.”

Albion are currently sat second in the division, just one place above the Clarets going into their televised Turf Moor clash.

A win for either side is therefore of added significance, with a place in the top two up for grabs.

And Boyd desperate to start a big month for the Clarets on a positive footing.

He added: “Brighton have been doing really well this season and they are one of the form teams.

“It’s up to us to perform though and with a big month ahead playing the top six, hopefully we can create a gap at the top.”

Having won six of their eight home games this season, Boyd finished by urging fans to once again back the side at Turf Moor.

A vociferous atmosphere could give the Clarets the edge against the Seagulls and with confidence high, another victory could, in theory, even send Sean Dyche’s men top of the league come Sunday evening.

Boyd said: “At home we feel strong, we have real confidence throughout every home game with the fans behind us and we are ready once again for the weekend.

“On television the atmosphere should be good and hopefully we can get the win.”
