The experienced schemer has been missing for weeks with a niggling calf injury, but is now ready to return to action.

Boyd trained before the humiliating 6-1 defeat to Bradford Park Avenue, jogging laps around Borough Park and taking part in ball work.

He sat out the match on the advice of Carlisle United physio Neil Dalton, but prepared for the Brackley clash with the rest of the squad last night.

“I was told to give it another week by Neil, but now I feel ready to play,” he said.

“I wanted to be part of the squad for Bradford, but you have to listen to the advice of professionals.

“I feel fine now. It was sore, but the pain has eased and I can’t wait to get back on the pitch.”

Boyd has played a major role for boss Darren Edmondson since joining the club in 2011.

Brackley are second in the Blue Square Bet North, just a point off top spot, and with a formidable record.

Losing just once – a 6-1 hammering at the hands of Harrogate – Brackley are unbeaten in their last five games.
