BOYD WANTS STRACH CALL

Midweek Sport - - NEWS - By GRA­HAM CHASE

GEORGE BOYD reck­ons he and Scott Ar­field can gate­crash Gor­don Stra­chan’s Scot­land squad by do­ing the business for Burn­ley.

Boyd (above) won the last of his two caps in May and is hop­ing the switch to Turf Moor – and reg­u­lar Premier League ac­tion – can get him back into Strach’s plans.

The 29-year-old said: “Scot­land are do­ing re­ally well at the minute and Stra­chan has got his squad to­gether, but you never know. If there’s a few in­juries, there’s a big chance for the likes of me and Scotty Ar­field – who’s also been play­ing re­ally well – to get in the squad.

“I think he’s de­served to be in the last cou­ple of squads the way he’s been play­ing.

“If he can keep do­ing what he’s do­ing, hope­fully he’ll get his chance.

“I think Stra­chan knows what we can do by now, so it’s up to him whether he wants to put us in the squad.”
