Bruce: Boyd will make up for lost time

Hull City manager Steve Bruce is confident that striker George Boyd will make up for lost time when returns to the side after serving a three match ban for spitting, according to Sky Sports.

George Boyd and Joe Hart

The 28-year-old was suspended for three matches after spitting at Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart, despite both player and manager denying the charge.

The forward will now be available for Saturday’s match against Swansea and Bruce believes he will be ready to make an impact on his return to the side.

"George is fine. He was obviously disappointed at the time but he'll not let it get to him," said Bruce.

"The one thing about George is that he trains every day as if it's his last. You can't keep him down.

"He's one of these players who realises what a great job he's got. Even though he's not played every week, he's always got a smile on his face.”

The 53-year-old boss admitted that Boyd was a joy to watch in training and believes that he will have a say for his team in the final stretch of the season.

With an FA Cup semi-final against Sheffield United fast approaching for his side, Bruce has challenged his squad to fight for a first team spot.

"There's places up for grabs from the team we've been playing so the motivation they all need is there," added Bruce.

"George had played the previous couple of games before his suspension and he's got that life and energy.

"With Robbie Brady being out (for the remainder of the season with a groin injury), he gives you that nice balance on the left hand side. He's in contention for the FA Cup semi-final and for Saturday."
