Kyle Dixon has vowed to get back to top gear at Boston United.
The energetic midfielder impressed during his five -match loan spell at the Jakemans Stadium last season.
After returning to parent club Notts County in February, the 19-year-old enjoyed a run in the Magpies’ first team.
However, an ankle injury has stunted his progress this season.
But now Dixon is back at Boston for a further loan spell and he is desperate to impress.
By his own admission, Dixon says his performances have not hit the heights they did last season, but he is keen to change that as soon as possible.
“I’ve learned a lot since the last time I was here, but being injured has killed me,” Dixon said.
“I was doing well at Notts and then I was out for about two months.
“I’m still getting back into it at the minute but I’ve not played as well as I have done here last year.
“I’m hoping I can do a lot better.”
Dixon’s mazy trademark runs and impressive range of passing made him an instant hit with the United fans last season, and that’s something he wants to replicate.
“Dixon added: “It’s frustrating for me as I can’t hit the strides I was hitting last year.
“Hopefully, I can snap myself into it. I feel like I’m half a yard off it, but after every game I feel better.
“But nothing can replicate game sharpness, I have to just try to get into the team and do my best and I know it’ll come.”
Dixon is now looking for United to bounce back following Saturday’s defeat to Hednesford, adding: “We’re miles better than that and we want to bounce back.”
