Injured Mark Boyd eyeing Workington Reds return
Last updated at 13:21, Tuesday, 22 January 2013
Workington Reds midfielder Mark Boyd has lifted spirits by announcing he plans to return to action early next month.
The good news comes as the away trip to Harrogate Town tonight was called off because of the adverse weather conditions.
After a consultation with Carlisle United physio Neil Dalton about his ongoing calf problem, Boyd was referred to a specialist in York.
He will visit the clinic next Tuesday and aims to be back on a football pitch in time for the visit of Oxford on February 9. Boyd re-injured his calf during the defeat at Histon earlier this month.
Boyd, 31, said: “Sitting on the sidelines, watching your mates struggle, is frustrating, especially as I’m not 22 anymore. I know I don’t have my whole career ahead of me. There’s probably only a couple of seasons left until I retire so I want to play as many games as possible.
“It’ll be great to finally get the injury sorted. It’s annoyed me for a while but I’ve tried to play through it.
“I’m still keeping myself fit in the gym. I’m in good shape and don’t want to let that go.”
Harrogate Town switched tonight’s game to Doncaster Rovers’ Keepmoat Stadium in a bid to get it on.
The ground passed an afternoon inspection and officials had planned to re-examine the surface this morning.
But with snow in Yorkshire continuing to fall and lying on the protective covers, the decision was taken to cancel the clash last night.
The game will now be played at the Keepmoat on February 6, kick-off 7.45pm.
